enver,
agreed, but "limit" has its utility sometimes. otherwise, there wouldn't be a need for a forum.
many point to vimalakirti's silence, but all in all, he's pretty verbose! :106:
one should be able to move freely within words, meaning, and concepts, yet not be bound by them.
be well,
guo gu

nice, thank you.

i think this ,
why shouldn't I look for a meaning?

because a meaning is LIMITED


is the answer of WHY ZAZEN?

Once your mindfulness has been awakened
this stage is completed.

In a sense zazen is to surrender fully.

Being reality
Without thinking

Night and day

7/24

don't know anything

there seems to be remain only the sound behind
which is the locusts chirring at night - level 1 ten bulls

In zazen i learn that I've to become a Matter or material.

I know nothing;

And there is peace coming out of the sum; that's the locusts chirring through the forest at night.
no need for mathematic !!!

Because then YOU BECOME FREE!

Once you become free you Unify with it*.
*Whatever it is

Seeing is very different.don't know becomes the teaching.which is the reverse

When you see you know what is what

Zazen

Teaching is Freedom

Freedom is Purity

So follow pureness


~ two cents;
no need for mathematic !!!
