Hands

Usually we treat things with both hands. Sometime some beginners will carry their eating bowl in one hand like this. It looks very strange [laughs], like pumpkin [laughs, laughter]. We always carry things, if possible, [with] both hands. And you carry things in one hand or at once, you know. We do not carry so many. We will carry one by one, going back and forth [laughs]. This is more-or-less Japanese way.  -------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-06-B as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC
