  • SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Xin Xin Ming -(XIV)- Child Comes Home



    Our little daughter has come home from the hospital today, after we might have lost her just a week ago. HURRAH! HORRAY!! Mom and Dad are AS HAPPY AS HAPPY CAN BE!

    Yet, just as a few days ago when things were dark and we were so sad, we still do not push any of life away, including happiness ...

    ... And neither do we run toward the days like this
    , clutching at happiness. Such is True Happiness, Equanimity and Contentment!

    Equanimity does not mean that one should be emotionless! One can have one's DHARMA CAKE AND EAT IT TOO! Last time I wrote ...

    Life is sometimes sickness and sometimes health. I know that human beings prefer only the healthy days ... but Buddhas have no such preferences.

    However, that does not mean a Buddha can't enjoy a good celebration and the happy times too! One can be glad and joyous AND STILL BE wonderously, simultaneously not desirous at all, open to whatever life next brings! Strange, this Buddhist Wisdom, isn't it?


    If the eye never sleeps,
    all dreams will naturally cease.
    If the mind makes no discriminations,
    the ten thousand things are as they are, of single essence.
    To understand the mystery of this One-essence
    is to be release from all entanglements.
    When all things are seen equally
    the timeless Self-essence is reached.

    No comparisons or analogies are possible
    in this causeless, relationless state.

    I really like this koan...it seems like really practical advice. The phrases 'throw it away' and 'carry it off' spoke to me as practical guidance on how

    I should explain: I was given an English dharma name by my (Japanese-American) teacher. It's Faith-Moon.

    Thanks Takoda for your thoughts. Yes the koan seems to be about not chasing after states of mind and an encouragement to keep letting go whatever arises.
