Unattainable

If Buddhism is some teaching which is attainable, you know, if you attain it that's all, there's no Buddhism, there's no need to study Buddhism. But fortunately, we don't attain anything, so we have to strive to attain it. And here we have double structure. One is, we should attain it, but on the other hand it is something unattainable. And, how to solve this problem is to practice our way, day by day, moment after moment, to live on each moment is the best answer. -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-06-29 as found on shunryusuzuki.com.
