Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Make the most of your regrets; never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it until it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.

Henry David Thoreau

Each one of you is perfect as you are. And you all could use a little bit of improvement.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

One day Ummon asked: “How can we make our religion proper?” Before any of the monks could speak, he answered himself: “Moo!”

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

A monk of Kassan’s went to Kotei and had just bowed to him when Kotei struck him on the back. The monk bowed again, Kotei struck him again. The monk went away, and when he told Kassan about this, Kassan asked: “Do you understand?”

“No,” the monk replied.

“That’s a good thing,” said Kassan, “for if you did, I’d have been amazed.”

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

In Zen, the effort and the result are not two different things, the means and the goal are not to be separated, the finding occurs in the very seeking itself. For ultimately, what is sought is the wholeness of the seeker, and this emerges only in the wholeheartedness of the seeking.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

One day Chinso was up on a tower with a few officials when one of them, seeing a group of monks, said, “Look, monks on a pilgrimage.”

“Not so,” said Chinso.

“How could you say it’s not so?” asked an exasperated official.

“Wait till they get near, and I will examine them.”

The monks arrived, and Chinso called out: “Reverend gentleman!”

They all raised their heads and looked at him.

“What did I tell you?” said Chinso to the official.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

In the deepest mountains and remotest peaks, where for a thousand years, for ten thousand years, no man has ever set foot—can we find Buddhism there or not? If you say yes, what kind of Buddhism is it? And if you say no, then Buddhism is not universal.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

I raise my hand; I take a book from the other side of the desk; I hear the boys playing outside my window; I see the clouds blown away beyond the neighboring woods—in all these I am practicing Zen, I am living Zen. No wordy discussion is necessary, nor any explanation.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Man knows that he springs from nature and not nature from him. This is an old and very primitive knowledge.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

The lay disciple P’ang asked Ma-tsu: “How does water with no bones or muscles support a boat weighing ten thousand tons?”

Ma-tsu answered: “Here is neither water nor boat, and what muscles and bones are you talking about?”

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

We invent nothing, truly. We borrow and re-create. We uncover and discover. All has been given, as the mystics say. We have only to open our eyes and hearts, to become one with that which is.

Deep in the mountains,
In a tree on a farm,
A single dove sings out,
Searching: lonely voice of evening.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

A monk asked Bokushu: “We are always putting on and taking off our clothes, and eating our food—is there any way of avoiding this?”

Bokushu said: “By putting on and taking off our clothes, and by eating.”

“I don’t understand,” the monk said.

Bokushu said: “Not understanding is wearing clothes, eating food.”

The birds have vanished down the sky.
Now the last cloud drains away.
We sit together, the mountain and me,
until only the mountain remains.

The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant party, but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.
