Kind Mind

Next thing is for the cook to have old ladies' mind. Usually, by nature, old lady is very kind. Or we say Buddha's mind is the mind of parents. They raise children with great care, with great love, and they do not miss any expression of their baby. And when it is cold, they will take off his own coat and cover the baby. When it is hot, they will carry their baby in the cool side, exposing themselves to the sun. You may say that is our instinct. Whether it is instinct or act of kindness, the mind they have is valuable. Because of this everything grows. Because of this we were so happy when we are at home and you will not forget how you were raised in your family when you are young. Even though you do not say “thank you,” you cannot forget it. This kind of mind is the mind of parents. -------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-06-A as found on Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture ex/cerpts on - from thee links to much more.
