    Announcing our next book: To You

    Dear All,

    Please allowing me to announce our next book for the "no words book club." We will take a little pause from Zen Master's Dance between chapters, for some wonderful reflections and inspiration, from dear Homeless Kodo Sawaki ... To You:

    It is a wonderful little book ... brilliant, in fact.

    Hi

    If you can practice Antaiji and Kotaiji,these are best things.
    I was at Antaiji practice with Abbot Muho and was at Kotaiji practice with Reiho San.
    They translate this book.

    Also Uchiyama Roshi was at Antaiji.Our linage is also from Sawaki Roshi.

    This book is in Japanese 禅に聞け,like,ask from Zen.

    Hope to have real practice.Reading book is reading book.Also reading is practice
    but...

    And perhaps you should actually understand Kodo Sawaki more, read a bit more, actually understand Zen practice more!

    If it was at the bottom, it is the foundation for the rest of the reading pile. .

    In a few weeks. We will be finishing this chapter of Dance, then a few Book of Serenity Koans ...

    Kodo would say "don't rush things."

    Too often, the young girl is in a hurry to become a woman; and when she's a woman, she wants to be a mother. The servant girl hates cooking and right away wants to be boss; but as a boss she finds the work too stressful. I wish that everyone would fully enjoy their life.
