Like a Child

 [After the chant (the last line of which is, "Buddhas way is unsurpassable. I vow to attain it.) at the conclusion of the lecture, Suzuki added:]

Umm – I vow to attain it. That is our practice. Don’t say, I’m just a human a being or It is not possible for me to attain it. Don’t say so. I vow to attain it. Like a child do it. That is our practice.           --------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki  lecture 69-04-20 - 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. Got to https://www.instagram.com/cuke_archives/ for more daily Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts - with a photo.
