Re: An Interesting Book to share

Thanks for this Fortyeightvows, I will spend time with this tomorrow... just what you quoted opens the field... I always did a double take, relating to clear light and then hearing the talk about vexations. I suspect it's partly the languaging... yet it's a diff orientation too. Zen expresses it as ...

Re: An Interesting Book to share

I remember this being discussed on zfi.

not so strange for me.... I know zen and Tibetan teachers who have taught together.... I was there. They offered a collaboration of their traditions... not so diff and yet we can learn from each other. We need more of this IMO.

Re: I lost my job today...

Minobu, you misquoted me on your last post.... it seems to be the source of your discontent. sorry gents, I was responding to someone who lost his job, nothing else. Everyone seems to agree that chants will not produce job security.... am I wrong about that. Coemgenu correctly tracks what I said... ...

Re: Zen Forum International status

Wild Fox koan.... good for this friday morning/afternoon/evening... Tanahashi gives the following rendering of the koan:[1] Every time Baizhang, Zen Master Dahui, gave a dharma talk, a certain old man would come to listen. He usually left after the talk, but one day he remained. Baizhang asked, "Who...

Re: I lost my job today...

I haven't read all the responses of these good folks, I have no doubt there is wisdom here. Yet, I still wonder if you find them helpful. mostly, it's a hard thing to lose a job no matter what. It's not helpful to blame yourself or to turn yourself into a self-improvement project. sometimes, we have...

Re: Dont follow a lineage (etc.), follow a teacher

walk in my shoes... then, tell me that. As far as I know in zen, ordinary mind is not judgemental mind.... not even close Rely on the message of the teacher, not on his personality Rely on the meaning, not just on the words Rely on the real meaning, not on the provisional one Rely on your wisdom min...

Re: Zen Forum International status

yup, good point I have seen the record in depth. It is a salad of good, bad and downright unsavoury, much of which should have been deleted IMO My bolding. IMO, this attitude is a major factor in what reduced ZFI to what it settled into being. The desire to present Zen folk as wise and peaceful, rat...

Very kind of you, DNS. Honestly, I don't see enough momentum on the forum for your efforts to bear fruit. I see some who think a new start would clear some of the fluff away... I doubt it. :smile: I had slowed way down on ZFI for my own reasons not related to the forum. Personally, I think we can al...
