SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Fukanzazengi XCI

| No Comments


Zazen is boring, there is nothing to get out of it.

Some days are joyful or peaceful, some days are not.

So what attitude gets my backside over to that Zafu, day in and day out?

'Homeless' Kodo said

Each and every step is our Practice, is our Life

Therefore, we do not discuss intelligence as superior and stupidity as inferior. Let us not choose between clever persons and dull ones. If we make effort devotedly, that is just wholehearted pursuit of the truth. Practice-and-experience is naturally untainted. The direction of effort becomes more balanced and constant. [Nishijima]

This being the case, intelligence or lack of it is not an issue; make no distinction between the dull and the sharp-witted. If you concentrate your effort single-mindedly, that in itself is wholeheartedly engaging the way. Practice-realization is naturally undefiled. Going forward is, after all, an everyday affair.
