That Point Again

It is rather difficult to explain how to be concentrated on this point. There are many koans and sayings on this point. And those sayings look like they are very different, but [laughs] actually they are all the same. Ordinary mind is tao, you know.      --------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki  lecture 69-03-30 - 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.
