Save

The Agama Sutra is supposed to be the oldest Buddhist sutra but even in Agama Sutra Bodhisattva thought is there. It says, Shujo muhen-- ”Sentient beings are numberless. I vow to save them.” Why Buddha, you know, came to this world is to save sentient beings. Buddha, he did not come to this world because of the karma.            --------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki  lecture 69-04-29 - 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.
