When I practice with you my understanding of our way becomes deeper and deeper, more natural and active than ever. This is possible because we are practicing in this country, where people have few preconceived ideas about Buddhism. So your response to what you see and hear is quite genuine, and I can see Buddha's Way in your reactions to the teaching, in your relations to what you see and hear at Tassajara. This is my great privilege. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-08-24-B as found on Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more.
