Monk In The World

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

I'm Being Followed by a Moon Shadow!


So here is what Dosho Port has us chewing on for the next two weeks from the Genjokoan:

When a person attains
realization,
it is like the moon
reflecting on the water.

The moon never becomes
wet
the water is never
destroyed.
Although it is a vast and great light, it reflects
itself on a small amount of water.

The whole moon and even the whole sky reflects
on even a drop of dew or a blade of grass or a
single tiny drop of water.

Enlightenment does not destroy the person as the
moon does not shatter the water.

The person does not obstruct realization as a
drop of dew does not obstruct the moon in the
sky.

The depth is the same as the height.
