Jan 6 – 12

January 7th, 2013

Try to be reasonable in the way you grow, and don’t ever think it is too late. It is never too late. Even if you are going to die tomorrow, keep yourself straight and clear and be a happy human being today. If you keep your situation happy day by day, you will eventually reach the greatest happiness of enlightenment.

-Lama Thubten Yeshe, The Bliss of Inner Fire

This Week’s Koan

Blue Cliff Record #94, Book of Serenity #88: “Non-Seeing in the Ryogon Sutra”

The Ryogon Sutra says,

“When I don’t see, why do you not see what I do not see? If you [argue that you] see what I do not see, that is of course not what I do not see. If you do not see what I do not see, then it is quite natural that it is not a thing. Why is it not your self?”
