    Nishijima Roshi's Explanation of Zazen

    Hi,

    While looking back through Nishijima Roshi's blog, I found a very nice explanation by him of the fundamentals of sitting Zazen, expressed in his own, lovely way of speaking and writing. It is always good to go back to the "basics", and Nishijima Roshi's personality really shines through in this. You might wish to have a look.

    Some nice reminders and a few things to add to practice for novices like me, thank you.

    I enjoyed this part as well:

    Buddhism denied the reality of consideration, and at the same time it denied the reality of sense perception, but it affirmed the real existence of action at the present moment, and so Gautama Buddha could establish the Buddhist philosophy, which is based on human action itself. Therefore we can say that Buddhist philosophy is established on the denial of both idealism and materialism, and the practice of Zazen is just the action, which is perfectly different from idea, or matter, but it is just the middle itself.
