Study Hall - Shobogenzo
Back to Dogen after the Christmas break, and I feel how my mind is rusty trying to absorb the words and what is beyond the words. Today, 'The Point of Zazen', 'Zazenshin': "Who are beginners? Are there any who are not beginners? When do you leave the beginner's mind?...When you reflect on your life's activities, are they intimate with zazen or remote from it? Is there in enlightenment in zazen, or is there delusion? Is there one whose wisdom penetrates zazen?"
