Lions Roar : July 2019
Big Shout, Big Echo It takes intensive meditation practice to wear away your habitual patterns and dis- cover the enlightened nature underneath, says BARBARA RHODES (Zen Master Soeng Hyang). IT’S IMPORTANT for the future of Buddhism to have practitioners who have practiced deeply and intensely. We have a saying in our Korean Zen tradition: “Big shout, big echo; small shout, small echo.” The big shout doesn’t come from good looks, money, or a prominent place in the community. It comes from an authentic practice. With any spiritual practice, you have to know for yourself why you’re doing it. Then, if you have an intelligent understanding of the practice and why you’re doing it, you’ll be able to sustain the strong, continuous effort that leads to deep experience. Extended formal practice gives you the oppor- tunity to examine your mind and see its repeating patterns. The longer you meditate, the more you become aware of the part of your brain that’s pro- grammed by past experiences: your likes, dislikes, fears, and attachments. Our clear mind is veiled by those patterns. CELEBRATING YEARS Lion’s Roar LION’S ROAR | JULY 2019 67
