Talk

If you have good friend to talk about emptiness with, you can talk about it and say whatever you like [laughs]. Whatever you say, that is emptiness [laughs, laughter]. And you can enjoy the discussion of emptiness [laughs, laughter]. But that is not, you know, the emptiness we mean [laughs, laughter]. But this kind of understanding helps our study of course. And we should not say that you should not write anything about Buddhism or talk anything about Buddhism. -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-08-25 as found on shunryusuzuki.com.
