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.

A Koan For Life


I'm reading ZEN QUESTIONS. I came across a quote by Dogen, translated by Gary Snyder from the Mountains and Water Sutra.
When I read this quote it just kind of stopped me in my tracks.
I felt like I had found my life's koan.
Now I will have to chew on this awhile as see if it actually becomes part of my body and mind.
