I was reading the simple words of master Huang-po (Obaku) ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huangbo_Xiyun ) and I thought I had to share them with you folks.
They are simple and direct... a true invitation to Zazen, a true invitation to the vast simplicity of the Here and Now...
These simple words are a cure for our minds wondering how to practice, sit, read the sutras, poop right... A Buddha practice is what a Buddha do!
please forgive me for the crappy translation... it's mine!
The absence of practice is my spiritual method, nothing else than the One Mind/Heart.
I ask you to never look after the Way, because what is looked for is lost when looking for it.
To look after nothing is the true tranquility. Who told you to eliminate this or that?
Look at the space! How can you produce it or eliminate it?
The only thing to do is to develop no opinion or confusion. Mountains are mountains, rivers are rivers. The earth, the mountains, the oceans and the stars are nothing else than your own Mind/Heart.
Sounds familiar? :lol:
Have a great day everyone,
