Talking about Dogen's Instructions to the Cook

First of all, Dogen Zenji says the cook must be of big mind to accept various criticism and complaint with, you know, not smile, - [laughs] if you smile they will be more angry [laughs]. So you cannot even smile [laughs]. Just to accept what they say, and just to understand our human nature is only the way.  --------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-06-A as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture ex/cerpts on cuke.com - from thee links to much more. Going slowly through Suzuki transcripts featuring whatever is next that seems okay.
