Thread: SIT-A-LONG with Taigu: space

    SIT-A-LONG with Taigu: space

    Space...Gap or stretch? something out there or just plain close? Something we are part of or something we travel and walk through? Dogen, a simple man in medieval Japan, loved space. He wrote a whole collection of talks about it.
    Dogen made it very clear: we are space and as such we may experience space. Sitting with its moving boundaries and constant shivering-shifting is space itself. Carving a Buddha out of wood or stone? A Buddha made of naked hands, a Buddha of flesh is what Dogen was all about. Eloquent space. Silent dharma talk.

    Is what is inside the above brackets the same as what is outside the above brackets? I think so...

    Gassho Master Taigu.

    Indeed, Soen, space in and outside brackets is the same. So is the space in and out of you. There is nothing that cannot be called "master" in the ten directions. So you may just drop it. On top of it, I am not very fond of titles.

    Taigu,
    Thank you for words, like chisel and hammer, forming space.
