Dogen Zenji

Ariel Pork gives us a snippet from Dogen's Valley Sounds, Mountain  Colors:
Slipping out of your old skin, not  held back by past views, you manifest immediately what has been  dormant for boundless eons. As this very moment manifests, "I" don't  know, "Who" doesn't know, "You" have no expectations, and "the buddha eye" sees beyond seeing. This experience is beyond the realm of human  thinking.
Just this.

  1. I think Kaz chose skin, but I actually prefer husk! To think, just breaking out of this...husk.

    Love this fascicle. You can find a recorded Genzo-e on it here:

    Kokyo is a great teacher.

    Big bow,
