At the root of all conflict and violence in the world is the way we use our mind to perceive differences. The differences themselves aren't the problem; they make the world interesting. The problem is our deeply ingrained habit of attaching to those differences and investing them with meaning and permanence. In this stirring talk, Shugen Sensei explores the legacy of racism in the US, our ongoing struggle as a country to live up to our professed ideals, and his wish that all who encounter the dharma can decide whether it's for them without feeling excluded by virtue of their "differences".
