    Dodging Questions

    Shunryu Suzuki Roshi (1904-1971), founder of Zen Center San Francisco and author of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind, was known to discourage questions about enlightenment. Once, when pressed on the subject, he replied:

    "What do you want to know for? You may not like it."


    --Suzuki Roshi, Tricycle: The Buddhist Review, Spring 1997

    Gotta be careful what I ask for, I just might get it!!

    Hi, Jundo,

    Maybe you and Shunryu Suzuki Roshi -- as for me, I know nothing!

    Many blessings,

    Hi, Jundo,

    Thanks for your reply, this seemed particularly appropriate at this time for me. Funny how things come to my attention exactly when they're needed.


    In late summer, heaven's breath is damply hot.
    It smothers the earth with dullness.
    Suddenly, thick clouds gather:
    A wave of polar air passes through like a frigid rake.
    Acorns fall like bullets,
    And a new wind breaks through.

    Deng Ming-Dao


    May any breakthrough experienced be for the benefit of all sentient beings throughout time and space.

    Many blessings,
    Lora
