Eight Power

The eighth power of Buddha is the mysterious power of showing the appearance of the Buddha in each pore of body. That is actually zazen practice. This is actually the explanation of our shikantaza. When you practice zazen in its true sense, actually you are Buddha himself, and in each pore of your body you have so many worlds [laughs]. And in each of the world, there is Shakyamuni Buddha. This is explanation of our shikantaza.  -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-08-25 as found on Edited by DC
