Dogen Zenji

read all comments

1 Justin Halloran = "Dogen Zenji, From Genjokoan,To study the Way 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 of the universe. To be enlightened by all things of the universe is to cast off the body and mind of the self as well as those of others. Even the traces of enlightenment are wiped out, and life with traceless enlightenment goes on forever and ever"
2 David Zuniga PhD MDIV MA = "Thanks Justin for sharing this beautiful, oft-cited passage from Dogen. It is a personal guide in my own life. It is possible to live this way, and it is a practice. From a Zen perspective the practice is the key, we need a practice to make the ideas possible. Peace, David"
