Carving the Divine Review by Meido Roshi

This is an excellent interview with Meido Moore Roshi giving his impressions of the upcoming documentary ”Carving the Divine”, which is about the traditional Japanese art of carving Buddhist images. He discusses how the student-teacher relationship functions in zen practice in the same way as the master-apprentice relationships shown in the documentary. He also talks about the important role of Buddhist images in encoding and transmitting both physical body usages of practice as well as an energetic quality of being. This important film is currently in crowd-funding for distribution. There is a link to its Indiegogo page in the video description. You can contribute there and be one of the first to see it when it’s released.
