Cling

So, if you believe in Buddhism, you have no problem with what kind of religion you should believe in. All the religion you will believe in, at the same time, will be Buddhism, if you understand it properly. But because you cling to one teaching only, forgetting all the rest of the teaching, or if you cling to the teaching just because your teaching is lofty, then you will lose the true meaning of the teaching. Even though your religion is good, if you think your religion is good but the rest of the teaching is not good, it means you ignore the rest of the truth.----------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-10-00 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.
