Help

Having the true spirit is how to help others. Without this point we cannot help others in its true sense. If you have this understanding, whatever you do-- alms giving, or kind words, or loving words-- will work. And this is why we practice zazen too. So zazen is not some particular practice to attain something for ourselves, but to have true understanding of life and to acquire true spirit of life.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-04-22-B 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.
