SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Genjo Koan I

| No Comments
The words 'Genjo Koan' have been translated in so many ways ... 'Actualizing the Fundamental Point' (Aitken & Tanahashi), 'Manifesting Suchness' (Waddell & Abe), 'The Issue at Hand' (Cleary), 'The Koan of Everyday Life' (Daido Loori, shown below), and 'The Actualization of Enlightenment' (Nishiyama & Stevens). My teacher, Gudo Nishijima Roshi, has called it both 'The Realized Universe' and 'The Realized Law of the Universe' ...


... and then there's my (Jundo's) rather pithy:

'The Reality of the Universe Manifesting As This Present Moment'.
