Student Z: Docho Roshi, hearing the stream, feeling it within, tears flow. What is the meaning?
SR: Because this kind of feeling, our practice is quite new to you. More and more you will feel deep joy in your practice. It does not mean your practice is wrong, or your attainment is not good. But if you feel in that way, with fear, that is because your experience is quite unfamiliar to you. That's all. So you will get accustomed to this practice more.  -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-04-23-B as found on Edited by DC
