Correct

The correct way to listen to my lecture is to listen with just the right amount of effort. Do not listen with a dualistic frame of mind. The correct way is just to listen with an accepting attitude. This is different from listening with the intent to ask questions. Asking questions is to merely develop your preconceived ideas. You must give up all preconceived ideas and all feelings of good or not good. If you listen to your teacher with the attitude of a disciple, you will learn about Buddhism in the right way.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Tony Artino notes from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-04-05 found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on cuke.com - from there links to much more. Going slowly through Suzuki transcripts featuring whatever is next that seems okay.
