When The Heart Is At Rest
PZI Zen Online 1-Day Summer Retreat
Disturbances are many, demons are strong, yet the gates to peace are open.
We might have imagined and hoped for different conditions,
but the life we have is infinitely more beautiful than the one we might have hoped for.
The Non-Attaining Buddha
A student asked an ancient teacher,
“The Buddha of Supremely Pervading, Surpassing Wisdom meditated on the Bodhi Seat for ten eons,
but the Dharma of the Buddha did not show itself and he could not become a Buddha. Why was this?”
The teacher said, “Your question is precisely the point.”
The monk said, “But he meditated on the Bodhi Seat; why couldn’t he become a Buddha?”
“Because he is a non-attaining Buddha.”
Better than knowing the body is knowing the heart at peace;
when the heart is at rest, the body is no longer anxious.
When body and mind are fully realized,
The saintly hermit declines to become a Lord.
Join us for our Summer 1-Day.
