Zen in the woods
Zen Buddhism Houston tx, A Dai no Shin Ji Project By Master Hughes
A word about our purpose from Master Hughes
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 sight!
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.
In Buddhism, to Namaste
Buddhists typically bow to rid themselves of attachment to ego and vanity, this binds one to samsara. To bow to and say Namaste to an elder, friend, guru, statue of the Buddha, or even a stranger is a sign of respect rather than devotion. The bow of respect contributes tangibly to the path away from attachment, it crushes the ego.
