From my teacher, in the monastery zendo, words of encouragement at the end of teisho before we all run to the Dharma Hall to line up for dokusan:

There is a saying: "Without it, you're not with it." Bring the "with it" to dokusan.

Great quote thanks for sharing Fuki, I just saw that there is commentary on the song from Sheng Yen.

Yeah I've never read it, might order it to expand my Sheng Yen collection, though I have a habit of ordering books but never reading them, but they may come in service to universal functioning so I guess I will :D

ps just found the version Huifeng shared with me (with commentary by Hsuan Hua), according to him (huifeng) this is the proper translation from the original unlike many of the popular English version on the interweb;

it has some grammar errors and all in CAPS but no biggy

Thanks for the link Marcel :namaste:

I have only 4 books from Sheng Yen that I have ordered, the rest are those free publications that can be found on DDM.
I also have that habit , eventually I will read the ordered book, but few months after the arrival, sometimes a year, but yes, few remained untouched or have only started them :)

“Enlightenment means to see what harm you are involved in and to renounce it.” David Brazier, The New Buddhism

“The most straightforward advice on awakening enlightened mind is this: practice not causing harm to anyone—yourself or others—and every day, do what you can to be helpful.” Pema Chodron, “What to Do When the Going Gets Rough”

During early morning service at the mountain monastery, after Heart Sutra, deep breath, full-throated, nothing held back,

"MMUUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuu!! . . . "

In the evening at the mountain monastery, between dinner and evening zazen, across the lake, a lone voice,

"mmuuuuuuuuuuuuuu . . . "

"word" beyond wisdom
