Ron Hogen Green, Sensei

Zen Mountain Monastery, Mt Tremper, New York, Thursday 05/23/2024

From Master Dogen’s 300 Koan Shobogenzo (The True Dharma Eye), Case 75 – Yantou’s “Sit Still”

How do we respond to life’s complications? Sitting in stillness is the simple practice, but in itself can become a hiding place. The Three Worlds—form, formlessness and desire—all arrive together at once, so how do we practice stillness in the midst of it all? Using a koan from Master Yantou, Hogen Sensei reminds us that true freedom, to let go and be totally alive to the suchness of this moment, is within our capacity to let go of fixed views about anything.
