    Koku

    These few words are inspired by Shobogenzo Koku.
    They were wriiten in an early morning train to answer one of my students poem about this chapter.




    Wonderful space
    Neither inside nor outside,
    When you're not there
    Then the ten thousand things move forward
    And an edgeless iris opens
    And turns a simple plum blossom
    Opening the open
    This
    The body of a bell tinkling in the wind
    Dindin dindin dindin
    The ancient poem of Nyojo
    Expresses it so well
    Nothing that is not it
    And nothing to make, neither words nor forms
    The vast space is both matter and seal
    Presence undone of itself
    Our real body open like a mouth
    Hanging in space

    How beautiful! I had never read this chapter Koku before ( I have only Shobogenzo volume 1, sorry ) but found it on the internet after you posted this gem.

    Thank you Taigu for your teachings.

    Taigu,

    Zazen this morning was particularly worthless and it may have been a reflection of your beautiful poem/teaching.

    Thanks again.

    Gassho, John

    Trois prosternations and gasshô
    Le secret consiste donc seulement à dire "OUI" et à se jeter dans le vide. Dès lors, il n'y a plus de problème. Il s'agit d'être soi-même dans l'instant présent, toujours soi-même, sans s'accrocher à son vieux moi.

    Pour vous, Anshu, en français...


    Réponse à Joko,
    Écrit dans le train du matin...

    Merveilleux espace
    Ni dans le dedans ni dans le dehors,
    Quand tu n'es pas la
    Alors les dix mille existences s'avancent
    Et s'ouvre une prunelle sans bord
    Et tourne une simple fleur de prunier
    Ouvrir l'ouvert
    Ainsi
    Le corps tintant d'une clochette dans le vent
    Dindin dindin dindin
    Le poème ancien de Nyojo
    Le dit si bien
    Rien qui ne soit cela
    Et rien à fabriquer, ni mots, ni formes
    Le vaste espace est à la fois sceau et matière
    Présence défaite d'elle-même
    Notre vrai corps ouvert comme une bouche
    Pendu dans l'espace

    trois prosternations aussi.
