Of late I have been interested in Shikantaza as a study subject. I love projects and am considering doing some research on its origins and adoption. Why? Because I feel that after the 800 years since Dogen’s Shobogenzo creation it is still being misinterpreted by many Zen practitioners. For sure many practitioners around the world are not restricting their interpretation to ‘just sit’.
I will of course read and watch again our teacher’s presentations on this subject.
As a starter I want to throw a question out on this forum. My question is:
What (in relation to Zazen) is NOT Shikantaza?
