Seekers

There are many seekers who analyze but never practice zazen.
They just keep the books,
like bankers who count money without themselves being rich.


Kodo Sawaki

Zazen

We stop the one who can’t cease from seeking things outside,
and practice with our bodies with a posture that seeks absolutely nothing.

This is zazen


Kodo Sawaki

Sit in Zazen

Just stop your wandering.
Look penetratingly into your inherent nature,
and, concentrating your spiritual energy.

Sit in zazen and break through.


Bassui Tokushō

To be free

If you want to be free,
get to know your real self.
It has no form, no appearance,
no root, no basis, no abode,
But is lively and buoyant.
it responds with versatile facility,
But its function cannot be located.
therefore when you look for it,
You become further from it;
when you seek it,
you turn away from it all the more.
