Gaining Idea

Gaining idea usually limits our meaning of practice. Our practice has limitless meaning in it. So that is why Zen has eternal life in it. And why Zen helps us in its true sense is because it will cut off the root of the problems we have. If you know how to practice zazen, you will know how to cut off your root of suffering-- root of trouble. That is why our practice is valuable.
