Restriction

When you say, “Whatever I do that is Buddha nature, so it doesn’t matter what I do, and there is no need to practice zazen” that is already dualistic understanding of our everyday life. If really it doesn’t matter there is no need for you even to say so. As long as you are concerned about what you do, that is dualistic. If you are not concerned about what you do you will not say so. When you sit, you will sit. When you eat you will eat. That’s all. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-11-02 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.
