SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Fukanzazengi XXXVII

| No Comments

"Sweep away thoughts!" means one must do zazen. Once thoughts are quieted,
the Original Face appears. Thoughts can be compared to clouds. When clouds vanish, the moon appears.
The moon of suchness is the Original Face.

— Master Daito Kokushi (1282-1337)

Master Dogen said ...

Abandon all involvements. Give the myriad things a rest. Do not think of good and bad. Do not care about right and wrong. Stop the driving movement of mind, will, consciousness. Cease intellectual consideration through images, thoughts, and reflections. [Nishijima]

Put aside all involvements and suspend all affairs. Do not think "good" or "bad." Do not judge true or false. Give up the operations of mind, intellect, and consciousness; stop measuring with thoughts, ideas, and views. [SZTP]
