Continuing from yesterday's excerpt

We should not regard our innocence as good or special, because such a perspective is the same as attaching to Zen. If we attach to Zen, we go swiftly to hell even though we think we are good and innocent. Thus an innocent young person can become careless of his Buddha nature and attach to his own idea of his innocence-and create more problems for himself.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Tony Artino notes from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-04-02.
