Re: Zen 2006

One can travel this world and see nothing. To achieve understanding it is necessary not to see many things, but to look hard at what you do see.

Re: Zen 2006

What is the realm of buddhahood?

Keep mindful twenty-four hours a day, never giving up no matter what state of mind, and one day it will be like meeting an old friend on a busy street: Oh! There you are!

Re: Zen 2006

The fiftieth ancestor was the Priest T’ien-t’ung Ju-ching. One day his teacher Hsueh-tou asked him, “How can you purify what has never been defiled?”

The master spent more than a year working on this question. Suddenly he realized the point and exclaimed, “I have seen into what has never been defiled!”

What thing is not found when painstakingly sought?
What thing comes of itself without being looked for?
What thing does not break under the blow of an iron hammer?
What thing closes by night and opens by day?

Re: Zen 2006

People want so much. We want to be someone else. “I want to be stronger.” “I want to be more directed.” “I want to be superwoman.” But it’s not possible. You must accept your condition. But “accept” is active. Who you are is active. Passive acceptance—that’s the immobile, inanimate Zen. It’s not the Zen I’m talking about. There’s passion here. Spirit for the quest. This is important: the sincerity of our quest and how we go about it. It’s a long path. Are you prepared? Do you want to walk on this path? Don’t think about it too much. Just walk! C’mon, let’s go! That’s Zen.

Re: Zen 2006

The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair.

Re: Zen 2006

Tu Fu comes from a saner, older, more secular culture than Homer, and it is not a new discovery with him that the gods, the abstractions, the forces of nature, are frivolous, lewd, vicious, quarrelsome, and cruel, and only men’s steadfastness, love, magnanimity, calmness, and compassion redeem the night-bound world.

Re: Zen 2006

People who seek the way, observe your own mind. When you know the Buddha is within, and do not seek it outside yourself, then mind itself is Buddha and Buddha is the mind.

Western laziness consists of cramming our lives with compulsive activity, so that there is no time at all to confront the real issues.

Re: Zen 2006

My body is like deadwood, my thoughts ashes.
Snow rests on my skull, frost in my jaw.
I don’t turn my back on the world just because I’m old.
Dust finds no place to light on my eyes.

“Did you have a happy childhood?” is a false question. As a child I did not know what happiness was, and whether I was happy or not. I was too busy being.

Re: Zen 2006

Somehow, in the process of trying to deny that things are always changing, we lose our sense of the sacredness of life. We tend to forget that we are part of the natural scheme of things.

Re: Zen 2006

I have been reading all day, confined to my room, and feel tired. I raise the screen and face the broad daylight. I move the chair on the veranda and look at the blue mountains. I draw a long breath, fill my lungs with fresh air and feel entirely refreshed. I make tea and drink a cup or two of it. Who would say that I am not living in the light of eternity?

Re: Zen 2006

The sun is high in the sky, shining on everything. Why is it blocked by a cloud?
Everyone has a shadow, with us always.
Why can’t you step on it?
The whole world is a pit of fire. What state of mind can you attain to avoid being burned?

There is no special “thing” to Buddhism. It can energize people, and it can kill people, too. Seeing into essential nature and becoming enlightened is beyond any Buddhism and penetrates everywhere.

Re: Zen 2006

Three scholars on the way to a civil service examination stopped to buy refreshments from a woman who sold pastries. One scholar was calm and quiet while the other two argued over literature. The woman asked where they were going, and the latter two told her. “You two won’t pass the exam,” she said, “but the other man will.”

The results turned out just as the woman predicted, and the two who failed went back to find the woman and ask her if she knew some mystic art to predict the outcome. “No,” she said, “all I know is that when a pastry is thoroughly cooked it sits there quietly, but before it’s finished it keeps making noise.”

If you ask me anything I don’t know, I’m not going to answer.

Re: Zen 2006

A monk asked Kuei-tsung: “Is there no gate through which you can help me to enter?”

The Master said: “The power of Kuan-yin’s sublime wisdom can save the world from suffering.”

“What is the power of Kuan-yin’s sublime wisdom?” the monk asked.

Kuei-tsung struck the incense pot three times and said: “Do you hear that?”

“I heard it,” the monk said.

The master said: “Why didn’t I hear it?” The monk was speechless, and the master took his staff and left.

Life is something that has to be lived and not talked about.
