Lions Roar : May 2006
If one examines the ten thousand things with a de- luded mind and body, one will suppose that one’s mind and body are permanent. But if one practices intimately and returns to the true self, it will be clear that the ten thousand things are without self. DOGEN ZENJI, in the Shobogenzo (“Treasury of the Eye of True Dharma”) ~ When you have gained a very deep understand- ing of emptiness, you will get to a point where your very concept of existence and nonexistence changes. After your profound realization and expe- rience of the emptiness of phenomena, things will appear spontaneously and naturally in the nature of illusion. THE DALAI LAMA, in Practicing Wisdom ~ What is emptiness? That is, what is anything when we take away all our notions and ideas? What is a stick, when I take away all my notions of what it is? We say, “a stick.” Take that idea away. “Straight.” Take that away. “An extension of my hand.” Take that away. What is it? Once we see what it is, then we see everything. ROSHI BERNIE GLASSMAN, in Infinite Circle The experience of emptiness is not found outside the world of ordinary appearance, as many people mistakenly assume. In truth, we experience emptiness when the mind is free of grasping at appearance. DZIGAR KONGTRUL, in It’s Up to You ~ We should really call mind emptiness, but because of the awareness faculty we call it mind. BUDDHADASA BHIKKHU, quoted in One Dharma, by Joseph Goldstein ~ There’s nothing absolute about our objects, ever, even though we usually think there is. We quietly assume a cup is a cup is a cup. But where can we draw the line between the cup and everything else? If you pay close attention, you’ll see that you can’t. STEVE HAGEN, in Buddhism Is Not What You Think ~ Outside void, inside void inside-outside void; Void, void, void, void, finally all void. From A Zen Forest: Sayings of the Masters Finally, All Void Buddhist teachers on realizing emptiness SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2006 59
