Thought for the Day

September 8, 2009 at 1:54 pm (Prodigal Valentine) ()

Dogen: “To study Buddhism is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things. To be enlightened by all things is to be free from attachment to the body and mind of one’s self and of others. It means wiping out even attachment to enlightenment. Wiping out attachment to enlightenment, we must enter actual society.

Out we go.

Yep, that’s just what I needed to hear, at just the right time. Thanks, George.
