Enjoy

So, “the sun-faced buddha, the moon-faced buddha” does not mean, “I don't care about the sun-faced buddha or the moon-faced buddha.” It means that the sun-faced [hits table with stick] buddha, the moon-faced [hits table with stick] buddha! We should enjoy the sun-faced buddha, the moon-faced buddha. It is not indifference. It is the more than attachment-- strong, strong [laughs] attachment to the moon-faced Buddha or the sun-faced buddha.  --------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki  lecture 69-03-09 - 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 e,xcerpts daily provides another way to experience Suzuki's teaching.
