May 27 - Jun 2

Spring, week 10
"Because zazen -- done even by one person for a short time -- unifies everything in the universe and harmoniously becomes one with every instant of time in the entire flow of time, it ceaselessly works in infinite worlds in the past, present, and future to accomplish the salvation of all sentient beings. . . . Even if all of the innumerable buddhas in the entire universe combined their efforts and attempted to measure the merit of one person's zazen, they could never fathom it." --Dogen
