Continuing from yesterday's excerpt

By practice Buddha did not mean just to sit under the Bodhi tree or to sit in cross-legged posture. Our cross-legged posture is the basic posture or original posture for us -- most fundamental way of being here. But what he meant actually was that mountain or trees or flowing water or flowers and plants and everything as they are is the way Buddha is. It means everything is taking Buddha’s activity in each position and in each way, but the way they are for themselves is not understood by themselves in realm of consciousness..--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 66-12-08 as found on shunryusuzuki.comEdited 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.
