Study

If you want to study Buddhism, with this experience (of zazen), you will understand the meaning of our practice intellectually. And it will help your intellectual understanding of the philosophical study of Buddhism, or understanding from various angles. Now Buddhism is open to science and philosophy and intellectual study and emotional activity. So from various angles you can study Buddhism. This is one of the characteristic of Buddhism. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-09-08-A as 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.
