“If you are involved with the intensity of crescendo situations, with the intensity of tragedy, you might begin to see the humor of these situations as well. As in music, when we hear the crescendo building, suddenly if the music stops, we begin to hear the silence as part of the music.”

“Place of No Grass”

Tôzan instructed the assembly and said, “At the beginning of autumn and the end of summer, you, brothers, are departing east and west. But you should go directly to the place of no grass over ten thousand miles.”

And again he said, “How will you go to the place of no grass over ten thousand miles?”

Sekisô said, “When you go out of the gate, there is grass!”

Taiyô said, “I would say: Even if you don’t go out of the gate, grass is abundant everywhere.'”
