That was his way of life after he attained enlightenment.  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-01-05Edited by DC - Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more. - Go to Wha at's New (now at blogger) to see more daily posts.]
