Continuing his answer from yesterday

Our sangha is a small world itself or society itself. We will learn many things. So for us it is necessary to know or to understand why we have rules. You should know why we have rules and why you have to say something to others. So actually, there are no rules. But [laughs], the rules are good devices.       --------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki  lecture 69-03-15 - as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC  - Going through Suzuki lectures and posting anything that can stand on its own. Not looking for zingers or "the best of." I find that following these excerpts daily provides another way to experience Suzuki's teaching.
