Dogen was very strict about Buddhists having worldly desires. As a Buddhist we should not have even the desire to expect enlightenment. You may say that was a strict observation of this Lotus Sutra. Of course, that was his character. His character was so pure and lofty. And he didn't care about anything but truth. He would give his whole body and mind to the truth. That was his way. -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-02-00-F as found on Edited by DC
