From The Zen Teaching of Huang Po: On the Transmission of Mind
“The Buddhas and all living beings are only one Mind. There is no other reality.” Shoan uses Huang-Po’s teachings to reflect on the notion of progress in Zen training, encouraging us to relax and let go of this kind of seeking and instead use our wholehearted practice as a way of open discovery. Have faith and trust yourself!
