Prayer of Enlightened Mind

After the Zen Master Bankei had passed away.

A blind man who lived near the master’s temple told a friend: “Since I am blind, I cannot watch a person’s face, so I must judge his character by the sound of his voice.

Ordinarily when I hear someone congratulate another upon his happiness or success, I also hear a secret tone of envy.

When condolence is expressed for the misfortune of another, I hear pleasure and satisfaction, as if the one condoling was really glad there was something left to gain in his own world.

“In all my experience, however, Master Bankei’s voice was always sincere.

Whenever he expressed happiness, I heard nothing but happiness,

and

whenever he expressed sorrow, sorrow was all I heard.”

Own Treasure House

Daiju visited the Master Baso in China. Baso asked: “What do you seek?”

“Enlightenment,” replied Daiju.

“You have your Own Treasure House. Why do you search outside?” Baso asked.

Daiju inquired: “Where is my Treasure House?”

Baso answered: “What you are asking is Your Treasure House.”

Daiju was delighted!

Ever after Daiju urged his friends: “Open your Own Treasure House and use those Treasures.”

True Emptiness

Buddhist Monk High Res Stock Images | Shutterstock

Subhuti was Buddha’s disciple. He was able to understand the Potency of Emptiness, the viewpoint that nothing exists except in its relationship of subjectivity and objectivity.

One day Subhuti, in a Mood of Sublime Emptiness, was sitting under a tree. Flowers began to fall about him.

“We are Praising you for your Discourse on Emptiness,” the Gods whispered to him.

“But I have not spoken of emptiness,” said Subhuti.

“You have not spoken of emptiness, we have not heard emptiness,” responded the gods. “This is true emptiness.” And blossoms showered upon Subhuto as rain.

The Real Miracle

Musangsa - Zen Master Seung Sahn

When Zen Master Bankei was preaching at Ryumon Temple, to the large audience

A Shinshu priest, who was jealous , appeared in the midst of a talk and made such a disturbance that Bankei stopped his discourse and asked about the noise.

“The founder of our sect,” boasted the Shinshu priest, “had such Miraculous Powers that he held a brush in his hand on one bank of the river, his attendant held up a paper on the other bank, and the teacher wrote the holy name of Amida through the air.

Can you do such a wonderful thing?”

Bankei replied lightly: “Perhaps your Fox can perform that Trick, but that is not the Manner of Zen. My miracle is that when I feel hungry I eat, and when I feel thirsty I drink.”

Enlightenment 360º is ….. to flow with Nature of Time and Glow with Nature of Timelessness.

Zen Dialogue

Children with past lives as Buddhist monks (Part 2) - Remembering my lives  (and deaths)

Zen teachers train their young pupils to express themselves. Two Zen temples each had a child protégé. One child, going to obtain vegetables each morning, would meet the other on the way.

“Where are you going?” asked the one.

“I am going wherever my feet go,” the other responded.

This reply puzzled the first child who went to his teacher for help. “Tomorrow morning,” the teacher told him, “when you meet that little fellow, ask him the same question. He will give you the same answer, and then you ask him: ‘Suppose you have no feet, then where are you going?’ That will fix him.”

The children met again the following morning.

“Where are you going?” asked the first child.

“I am going wherever the wind blows,” answered the other.

This again nonplussed the youngster, who took his defeat to his teacher.

“Ask him where he is going if there is no wind,” suggested the teacher.

The next day the children met a third time.

“Where are you going?” asked the first child.

“I am going to the market to buy vegetables,” the other replied.

Storyteller’s Zen

How to Save Your Energy for Things That Matter

Encho was a Famous Storyteller. His tales of love stirred the hearts of his listeners.

One day Encho met Zen Master Yamaoka Tesshu, “I understand,” said Yamaoka, “you are the best storyteller in out land and that you make people cry or laugh at will. so Tell me my favorite story of the Peach Boy. When I was a little tot I used to sleep beside my mother, and she often related this legend. In the middle of the story I would fall asleep. Tell it to me just as my mother did.”

Encho dared not attempt this. He requested time to study. Several months later he went to Yamaoka and said: “Please give me the opportunity to tell you the story.”

“Some other day,” answered Yamaoka.

Encho was keenly disappointed. He studied further and tried again. Yamaoka rejected him many times. When Encho would start to talk Yamaoka would stop him, saying: “You are not yet like my mother.”

It took Encho five years to be able to tell Yamaoka the legend as his mother had told it to him.

In this way, Yamaoka imparted Zen to Encho.
