TALK> Numata Chair in Buddhist Studies, University of Calgary: "Precepts and Formlessness in the Evolving Chan Tradition"

Focusing on the Platform Sūtra 六祖壇經, Dr. Morten Schlütter discusses how bodhisattva precepts and the notion of formlessness (wuxiang 無相) became associated in the early Chan movement, yet ultimately failed to maintain lasting appeal. Mass bodhisattva precepts ceremonies for both lay people and monastics became very popular in eight-century Chinese Buddhism. The emerging Chan movement tapped into the burgeoning interest in precepts ceremonies, incorporating a strong emphasis on the untainted Buddha-nature of all sentient beings.
