Blue Cliff Record Index

This is an index to where koans from The Blue Cliff Record appear in Katagiri Roshi’s talks.

Katagiri usually refers to “The Blue Cliff Record” translated by Thomas Cleary, which he says is the best translation (see Blue Cliff Record: Case1 – Lecture1 (0:00)).

Note: This is an early work in progress, and it only includes talks I have transcribed. I will update it as I add new transcripts.

Case 1: The Highest Meaning of the Holy Truths

Case 2: The Ultimate Path Is Without Difficulty

Case 46: Ching Ch’ing’s Sound of Raindrops
