The Ninety-eighth Gate
The practice of the balanced state of dhyāna is a gate of Dharma illumination; for it fulfills the ten powers.

Dhyāna :
A deeper awareness of oneness which is inclusive of perception of body, mind, senses and surroundings, yet remaining unidentified with it (meditation)


May we together with all beings
Practice daily Shikantaza
That we may fulfill the ten powers.

May this offering bring peace to all beings
May our actions contribute to the harmony of The Universe
And, may all hearts and minds be opened to the present

仁道 生開 - Jindo Shokai "Open to life in a benevolent way"
Just another itinerant monk; go somewhere else to listen to someone who really knows.
