you walk along the stream

Re: Zen 2006

A monk asked Chia-shan: “What if one sweeps away the dust and sees the Buddha?”

The Master replied: “You must brandish your sword!”

Re: Zen 2006

Yeh-shan promised to give his monks a dharma talk. Instead he sat deep in zazen. Afterward, the head monk followed him back to his room and angrily said: “You promised to give a dharma talk. But you didn’t say a word.”

Yeh-shan said: “For sutras there are sutra specialists. For commentaries there are commentary specialists. What do you expect from this old monk?”

Re: Zen 2006

“Where have you come from?” Henry Suso asked.

“From nowhere.”

“What are you?”

“I am not.”

“What do you wish for?”

“Nothing.”

“This is a miracle,” Suso exclaimed. “What is your name?”

“I am called Nameless Wildness and my insight leads to that untrammeled freedom when a man lives according to all his caprices without distinguishing between God and himself.”

Re: Zen 2006

When we look back on this life, we see that when people are born, no one has thoughts of joy, sadness, hatred, bitterness. Are we not born with the state of Buddha mind, given by our parents? But once intelligence develops, we learn habits from others, and our own personal mental habits emerge, and the Buddha mind is turned into a monster because of self-importance. We argue, lose our temper, muse over useless things, repeat the same thoughts again and again....It is darkness to darkness in an endless cycle.

Wake up: the world’s a mote of dust
behold heaven’s round mirror.
Turn loose: slip beyond shape and
shadow
and sit side by side with nothing—
except the tao.

A hard cold rain driven by the wind.
Late at night the leaves drip.
Who knows what dreams entrance
the world?
It’s simply the luminous Buddha mind.

Re: Zen 2006

An adult is one who has lost the grace, the freshness, the innocence of the child, who is no longer capable of feeling pure joy, who makes everything complicated, who spreads suffering everywhere, who is afraid of being happy, and who, because it is easier to bear, has gone back to sleep. The wise man is a happy child.

This table has four legs. A table with a broken leg remains a table. But a table from which the four legs have been removed becomes only a flat piece of wood. At what moment did it cease to be a table?

Re: Zen 2006

One day at the monastery of Master Fugai Ekun, ceremonies delayed preparation of the noon meal, which forced the cook to hurry. He took up his sickle and quickly gathered vegetables from the garden, then threw it all into a soup pot—unaware that in his haste he had cut off the head of a snake.

At the meal the monks were highly complimentary of the delicious soup, but the Roshi himself found something odd in his bowl. He summoned the cook and held up the snake head. “What is this?!?”

“Oh, thank you, Roshi!” the cook said, and immediately ate it.

Re: Zen 2006

If treacherous talk is constantly in your ears, and unwanted thoughts are constantly in your mind, you can turn these about and use them as whetstones to enhance your practice. If every word that came to your ears was agreeable, and all things in your mind were pleasant, then your whole life would be poisoned and wasted.

Re: Zen 2006

Mu-chou asked a monk: “Where have you just come from?”

The monk gave a shout.

“That’s a shout on me,” Mu-chou said.

The monk shouted again.

“Three shouts, four shouts, so what?”

The monk said nothing.

Mu-chou gave him a stout blow, crying, “You thieving phony!”

Re: Zen 2006

When I heard the learn’d astronomer,
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

Walt Whitman

Tung-shan said: “Why not go where there is neither cold nor heat?”

“Where is there neither cold nor heat?”

Tung-shan said: “When it is cold, let the cold kill you. When it is hot, let the heat kill you.”

Re: Zen 2006

The way of Buddhas is wide open, without any stages. The door to liberation is the door of nothing.

Re: Zen 2006

When you do something, you should burn yourself completely, like a good bonfire, leaving no trace of yourself.

Re: Zen 2006

Do not desire to become a Buddha; let sitting or lying down drop away. Be moderate in eating or drinking. Be mindful of the passing of time, and engage yourself in zazen as though saving your head from fire.

Re: Zen 2006

Just have no mind on things and no things on mind, and you will naturally be empty and spiritual, tranquil and sublime.
