Sat Sep 6

"We're all subject to karma, to cause and effect, birth and decay. But how can we be peaceful no matter what conditions our karma brings? That's the challenge of our practice. To liberate oursleves from our karma we must become karma itself."
- Gerry Shishin Wick

Koan of the Week
Gateless Gate #33: "No Mind, No Buddha"

A monk asked Mazu in all earnestness, "What is Buddha?"
Mazu replied, "No mind, no Buddha."

Wumen'ss Commentary:
If you can see into what was said here, your study is at an end.

Wumen's Verse:
If you meet a swordsman, you may present a sword;
You should not offer a poem unless you meet a poet.
When you speak to others, say only three-quarters of it;
You should never give the remaining part.
