Still at the Blackboard

Although there is black and white, those are two sides of the one coin - absolute and relative. And there is some difference in the way of practice in Rinzai and Soto. Soto puts emphasis on this one [white] and Rinzai puts emphasis on this one [black]. So Rinzai puts emphasis on enlightenment and we put emphasis on each part of the body which participates with the practice of the absolute. So that is why we are concerned about mudra or posture or every form or manner of your activity. -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-08-25 as found on shunryusuzuki.com.
