Name

You can see many mountains, you know-- you will enjoy to see many mountains, but when you are interested in the sight of the mountains you see, the value of each mountain will be ignored. If I call you by name of human being-- ”Hi, human being!” [laughs, laughter], your character will be ignored. Everyone is human being. We don't know whether [laughs] you are man or woman or young lady or old lady: just any human being [laughs]. It doesn't make any sense. If you are called by your name, you know, you will be happy. -------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-12-06-B as found on shunryusuzuki.com.
