From the Book of Serenity, Case 53 – Huangbo’s “Dreg-slurpers”
The Buddha said we all have Buddha Nature; we all have an already completely present and perfect enlightened mind, an enlightened nature. Shugen Roshi talks about spiritual practice, the “path of non-attachment” and its meaning in the context of the world in which we live wherein there is such a strong inclination to go against that.
