A Zen Story

Post by loves' the unjust » Thu Aug 29, 2019 2:20 pm

There is a Zen story that goes like this. ‘Master, how do I enter Zen?’ asked the pupil.
'Do you hear the sound of that little mountain stream?’ asked the master.
‘Yes, I do,’ replied the pupil.
‘Enter Zen from there,’ said the master.

Q: In perception through body and mind, are there several forms, such as eye perception, ear perception, nose perception, body perception, mind perception, etc.?
A: No, there are not several forms like these.

Q: If there are not several ways of perceiving, what, then, is perception?
A: This so-called "perception" is one's own Nature. One's own Nature, originally pure and clean, deep and still, is, in fact, in its voidness, perception.

Q: Since this pure, clean "substance" cannot be located, where does perception come from?
A: It is like a great, bright mirror that, even though it has no images inside it, can perceive and reflect all kinds of shadows. It is just utterly void no-mind. If the mind of the practicer does not grasp anything, then false thought will not arise; and the ego and its objects will vanish. Then the mind would naturally be pure and clean because it would be one with the pure and clean perception of void Original Nature. The Dharmapada Sutra says: "Perception manifesting itself in the Absolute Void -- this is the learned master."

"Then, Bahiya, you should train yourself thus: In reference to the seen, there will be only the seen. In reference to the heard, only the heard. In reference to the sensed, only the sensed. In reference to the cognized, only the cognized. That is how your should train yourself. When for you there will be only the seen in reference to the seen, only the heard in reference to the heard, only the sensed in reference to the sensed, only the cognized in reference to the cognized, then, Bahiya, there is no you in terms of that. When there is no you in terms of that, there is no you there. When there is no you there, you are neither here nor yonder nor between the two. This, just this, is the end of stress." - from the Bahiya Sutra

How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.

Words given to a male character by a feminist author . . .

Passions are fleeting. Ironically, so are skyborne ducks. But as long observed, the continuity of ducks is not fleeting. Just deep naturalness and togetherness, pure flow. Demonstrating.

The Anas platyrhynchos here, the kind of ducks you see the most, the males group rape the females and the females often drown in the process, no drowning in the video but I've seen underwater footage of female ducks being raped and drown in the Amsterdam canals, it's quite common.


French rape


But ofcourse it's nothing compared to ducks in the human farming business, that's true hell.

So immoral! They should be held accountable according to human moral law. I can borrow back my Beretta 686, buy a box of 12 gauge field load, and personally make an example of how to fix this *rape* problem. I'll just look for the glossy head to make sure it's a male.

Why would nature need this adaptation for the survival and proliferation of birds? Any ordinary buddhist knows better!

Those f*cking ducks!

Samsara is a fuckfest, it's literally fucked, this son of a bitching dream-realm. :107:
