bow vow

Usually when you bow to Buddha you look like you are respecting Buddha, but actually why you bow to Buddha is to continue your practice. That is the point. Without having any particular idea or any particular substantial idea or materialistic idea, just to live in bodhisattva's vow is the point. --------------------------------------------------  Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-01-12 as found on shunryusuzuki.com.
