"Do not just leave washing the rice or preparing the vegetables to others but use your own hands, your own eyes, your own sincerity. Do not fragment your attention but see what each moment calls for; if you take care of just one thing then you will be careless of the other. Do not miss the opportunity of offering even a single drop into the ocean of merit or a grain atop the mountain of the roots of beneficial activity."
- Dogen's "Tenzokyokun," trans. White Wind Zen Community
Your support is deeply appreciated! In addition to a monthly public thanks to you on my blog, I will write an entire post as a response to any questions you have.
"Practice just here is not apart from realization. Fortunately, each one of us has individually inherited this wondrous practice; each beginner’s endeavor of the way brings forth original realization in the realm of the unconstructed. Know that not to divide this realization, which is inseparable from practice, buddha ancestors always caution you not to be lax in your practice. Release this wondrous practice, and original realization fills your hands. Liberate original realization and wondrous practice is upheld throughout your body."
