    SIT-A-LONG with Taigu: Okesa 2

    In Kesa Kudoku Dogen writes the following:

    This being so, we should make [the ka??ya] properly, according to the method
    for making the ka??yathat has been authentically transmitted by the Buddhist
    patriarchs. This alone is the authentic tradition, and so it has long been expe-
    rienced and recognized by all common and sacred beings, human beings and
    gods, and dragons and spirits. Having been born to meet the spread of this
    Dharma, if we cover our body with the ka??yaonly once, receiving it and
    retaining it for just a k???aor a muh?rta,31that [experience] will surely serve
    as a talisman to protect us32in the realization of the supreme state of bodhi.
    When we dye the body and mind with a single phrase or a single verse, it
    becomes a seed of everlasting brightness which ?nally leads us to the supreme
    state of bodhi.When we dye the body and mind with one real dharma or one
    good deed, it may be also like this. Mental images arise and vanish instanta-
    neously; they are without an abode. The physical body also arises and van-
    ishes instantaneously; it too is without an abode. Nevertheless, the merit that
    we practice always has its time of ripening and shedding. The ka??ya,simi-
    larly, is beyond elaboration and beyond non-elaboration, it is beyond having
    an abode and beyond having no abode: it is that which “buddhas alone, together
    with buddhas, perfectly realize.”(Nishijima Cross)
    Let's see what is the kesa made of. Rags. Just rags.

    Thank you Taigu Sensei. The fabric chosen for your Okesa is beautiful. What a treat for those who will be able to see it in December!

    Taigu,

    Your kesa looks beautiful. Yes, it will be quite an amazing sight for the attendants to the retreat.

    Thank you for this teaching.

    I really want to start my first kesa now!

    A word of caution everybody...You are not meant to sew a funzoe kesa just like I am doing now. Your kesa should be of a single colour, dark brown, blackish but nothing extravagant. Please follow the instructions of the nyohoe guide and ask if in doubt about the coour or fabric you are choosing.

    Have fun! (and also not so much fun... :lol: )

    Thank you for making this clear. Too bad for all the folks who will be making one, because your choice in textiles definitely puts the Fun in Funzoe!

    Thank you Taigu Sensei. As you spoke, it made me think of the Instructions to the Head Cook. Focusing on the rags and making them the most important thing. Is that what Dogen means by turning something into the 16 foot golden body of the Buddha? We focus all of ourselves into that one thing?

    Gassho,

    Risho,

    Yes. Doing what we are doing, without adding or taking away is our way.
