Buddhadharma : Fall 2005
fall 2005| 60 |buddhadharma The genius of what the Buddha taught is that waking up does not depend upon his or anyone else’s realization. It does not rely upon a belief system, dogma, or doctrine. He encouraged us to find out for ourselves about the true nature of reality, which is dependent upon nothing whatsoever. Master Rinzai says, “If your faith is insuffi- cient, you will keep on wandering in confusion. No matter what the circumstances, you will be controlled and led around by others. You will not find freedom. ... Because you don’t have enough confidence in yourselves, you search outwardly.” Typically we think of self-confidence as affirm- ing and asserting the ego. Is this what Master Rinzai means? Who is the self of this self-confi- dence? Certainly it’s not that separate self in which we do believe, much to our discredit – that con- cocted separate self that leads us to yearn after wholeness, which results in our being led around by others and to our searching outwardly. The only way we can have true self-confidence is to Trust Practice, Practice Trust When we truly give ourselves over to practice, explains Roko Sherry Chayat, we let go of our dependence on outcomes and begin to trust just being what we are, buddhanature, revealed in this very body and place.
