Student Y: Docho Roshi, you have told me at first I must serve in calmness.

SR: Serve?

Student Y: Serve in calmness others.

SR: Mm-hmm.

Student Y: Is the boss that is illumined by the mind['s] calmness only a small boss?

SR: There is actually no small or big boss. When you call any boss, that is your boss. Because you think this is big boss or great boss, your practice is not any more true practice. Don't be involved in good or bad, high or low. Just do what you should do at that moment.
