SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Fukanzazengi LI

| No Comments

Here is the 'Secret of Secrets', the Key to the Myriad Doors of Zazen:

... that little rocking back and forth at the start.

(What? You thought it was something else??)

Do that rock 'just so', and All Buddhas of All Ages 'rock & roll' with you.

Do that 'Sway' in accord with 'the Way', and the universe swings and sways too.

shinsô sudeni totonoe te kanki issoku shi, sayû yôshin shite,

Having readied the posture, make one complete exhalation, and sway left and right. [Nishijima]

Once you have adjusted your posture, take a breath and exhale fully, rock your body right and left, [SZTP]
