Looking for a Ven. Master Sheng Yen Talk

Post by Invokingvajras » Mon Sep 18, 2017 4:12 am

A while ago, I came across a video talk by Ven. Master Sheng Yen that mentioned gender among certain bodhisattvas. I made the mistake of not making note of the original source, but did manage to jot down a transcription from the subtitles:
They are genderless, neither male nor female, like Kuan-Yin Bodhisattva or Majushri Bodhisattva. What gender would you say they are? Neither male nor female. They are genderless."
If anyone happens to recognize the talk this statement came from, please do share!

Might be worth posting this on the Zen Forum International, where Guo Gu who used to be Master Sheng-Yen's attendant monk posts. I think he is also a member here, so you may wish to contact him directly with your question.

A different video, perhaps, but he makes more or less the same statement beginning around 3:50 here:

Guo Gu would indeed be a good person to ask.

~ Meido
It is relatively easy to accomplish the important matter of insight into one’s true nature, but uncommonly difficult to function freely and clearly [according to this understanding], in motion and in rest, in good and in adverse circumstances. Please make strenuous and vigorous efforts towards this end, otherwise all the teachings of Buddhas and patriarchs become mere empty words. - Torei
