The One Moon shows in every pool.  In every pool the One Moon.       Chinese Proverb

“When i do not think, and only listen, one drop of rain upon the roof is myself.”  Dogen

“The practice of Zen is forgetting the self in the act of uniting with something.”

“By awakening to our self-nature, by awakening to both emptiness and form, we come to peace. This is true Buddhist salvation. However, we must wipe away all traces of enlightenment as well, and then forget that we have wiped them away. And that practice continues endlessly. This is the Buddha Way.”                                                                                                                                                       Koun Yamada

“Friends in the Dhamma, be satisfied with your own heads. Do not put any false heads above your own. Then minute after minute, watch your steps closely. Always keep your head cold and your feet warm. These are my last words to you.”                                                                 Nyogen Senzaki (Before he died)

 

        In the seen there is only the seen, In the heard there is only the heard, In the sensed (smell, taste, and touch, etc) there is only the sensed, In the perceived there is only the perceived: This, Bahiya, is how you should train yourself.                     Shakyamuni Buddha  (‘Discourse to Bihiya’)
