Boat

If you practice it, Buddhism is there and enlightenment is there. So what was written in scriptures is like an old boat by which you came across. But people just believe in what was written in scripture and believe in the three periods of Buddhism and ignore the practice. And if you practice it and are expecting something after practice, then that practice is the daydream or old boat by which you came across. [Laughs.] You should forget all about the old boat. Old boat means sutras. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 66-12-17a speaking on Dogen's Gakudo-yojin-shu as found on shunryusuzuki.comEdited by DC - Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on cuke.com - from there links to much more. - Go to cuke.com What's New [now at blogger] to see more daily posts.
