Tenshin Roshi talks on Case 28 of the Book of Equanimity, "Gokoku's Three Shames". This talk was given in the aftermath of the Mountain Fire and Tenshin Roshi focuses on a part of the koan that brings up what the function of a temple guardian is, or might be, and the expecatations we have of someone who stands in that position.
