Zen in the woods
Zen buddhism Houston tx, A Dai no Shin Ji Project By Master Hughes
Quote Master Hughes "I've spent a good portion of my life alone, so what do I do when I'm alone. I like to gaze upon the star's and see the world as the Buddha saw it. Touching the relationship of all things."
Buddha means one who is awakened
If a person wants to find the Buddha you must look within. You must investigate your mind dispelling the ignorance gained thru years of opinions, and clarify your nature. Zen Philosphy!
You must investigate it when standing, sitting or lying. When speaking or silent. Even eating or drinking.
Unclutter the mind the understanding of Zen is within.
When you have exhausted all efforts, let go of all sense of self. When you find the mountain that you cannot cross.
Give up exhausted, mentally and physically, cling to nothing for you can take nothing with you. Then the gate of Zen will open.
And as suddenly as a lightening bolt strike. Insight, will fall upon you like a spring shower. With blistered feet, an exhausted mind, you will have the resolve of Fudoshin ( literally Immovable mind), you will understand Zanshin ( literally remaining spirit) and will have experienced
Mushin ( literally no mind). You are now one of us.
Dainoshin ji means big field mind temple, the dainoshin ji teaching program was developed by Master Hughes to help people develop their Zen abilities the path to Zen. The dainoshin Ji was orignally in Jacksonville Texas where it operated for 20 years.
