Shunryu Suzuki lecture note

What I am speaking about this evening is the right attitude towards religion. True religion does not add to one's helplessness. But you should not expect to gain from a religion-- because it is not of things, i.e., worldly. For example, Buddha's wisdom does not produce anything. Wisdom sees the world and things as they are; but wisdom has no form or color. Hence wisdom is not something to rely on.

This is a third excerpt from Tony Artino's notes on the same Shunryu Suzuki lecture as the last two - 66-11-09. Go to to read the whole thing. - DC
