SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Fukanzazengi XI

| No Comments

Master Dogen said 'Zazen is itself Enlightenment,' there is nothing to pursue ...

Thus, as you can, do not think 'this' vs. 'that', forget 'likes' 'dislikes' ... do not think 'me' - 'not me' ... dropping all such dividing images from mind. Just Sit, in the open space in between.

This is also 'not pursuing' ...

However, if there is a thousandth or a hundredth of a gap, heaven and earth are far apart, and if a trace of disagreement arises, we lose the mind in confusion.[Nishijima]

And yet, if there is a hairsbreadth deviation, it is like the gap between heaven and earth. If the least like or dislike arises, the mind is lost in confusion. [SZTP]
