If you say there is not enough, there is nothing lacking. This is the mind which neither increases nor decreases and which is completely free and unrestricted. To really study and investigate this mind is the Dharma vehicle of the ancient Buddhas; it is the gate to the Dharma...

The Buddhas are delighted when sentient beings are happy and distressed when they are hurt. So by loving them I will please all Buddhas and by harming them I will injure the wise. For just as someone whose body is engulfed by fire finds no pleasure in desirable objects, it is impossible for the compassionate ones to be joyous when a sentient being is in pain...

This story about Nangaku is interesting and important. Dogen Zenji did not initially introduced it in its entirety in the Shobogenzo Zazenshin. He presented the sayings from the koan story and then added his comments. When we read the Zazenshin, therefore, this story is not particularly clear. Dogen’s comments are especially difficult to understand. This is typical of Dogen. Unless we have a clear understanding of the original story, therefore, we really don’t understand what he is talking about, not even one sentence of it.

The frontispiece to this sutra chapter shows a dramatic three-quarters view of the Buddha seated with two bodhisattvas. Seven figures pay obeisance to the Buddha, with the six in front raising offerings of food.

I ask you, ‘If you were to separate from false thought, then where would you be? Apart from false thought, what kind of a person are you?’ All of you should carefully and minutely examine this for a moment. Are you yet able to comprehend a little of what I say?

It is certain that we have seeds of happiness, seeds of joy, of peace, of love, in us, but it may be that during our daily lives, nobody knows how to touch those seeds...
