A Brief Morning Zazen Talk

We have one more day. Don't be attached to your attainment as a result of past effort. Or don't be attached to the refreshed stage you attained mechanically. Open up your mind wider and be more subtle, ready to accept things as it is, and practice -- continue your practice. This is the meaning of sesshin. The mind you attained is not even quite newly refreshed mind. It is nothing itself -- itself, free from all attachment. I am very much grateful to sit with you in this way and to have more chance to sit. Let's make this sesshin more meaningful one. Thank you very much. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 66-08-19-B as found on Copy and paste the name into the search box there to get to the transcript.. Edited by DC - Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more. - Go to What's New [now at blogger] to see more daily posts.
