Mountain Flowing

Gift from Buddha is not only water but also mountain is a gift. So that mountain is not always mountain. To us it is mountain but to a bird it is their home. There may be various merits or virtues of the mountain, so (Fuyo Dokei zenji?) says, ‘The east mountain is flowing and the river stays.’ Water stays and mountain flows. We think mountain is something which is always staying in some certain place, but there may be some person who sees the mountain flowing and water staying. --------------------------------------------------  " Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 67-12-014 as found on Edited by DC
