Pasting

Dogen says we originally were and are Buddha nature. But the instant we attach something, we lose our nature. As analogy, consider the transparent nature of my eyeglasses. Attachment is like pasting images on them. In such a case they cannot function according to their true and original nature.------------------------------- Excerpt from Tony Artino notes from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-04-02.
