Whatever Way May Be Good

Without experiencing our way, to discuss our rules is not right because we put emphasis on our experience, not intellectual discussion, whether this is the Japanese way or American way. We have not much idea of the Japanese or American way. Whatever way may be good [laughs]. We should try to improve our way, and we should develop our way. This is a bodhisattva's mind or spirit. —Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 67-12-06-B - as found on shunryusuzuki.com edited by PF.
