Buddhadharma : Spring 2018
58 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER'S QUARTERLY THE TITLE OF Uji, translated as “Being–Time,” essentially contains the totality of the text. Unpacking the meaning of this hyphenated word opens a vast interconnecting vista of practice. The two char acters u-ji are usually translated as arutoki or “for the time being.” Dogen separates the two characters (u meaning being, and ji mean ing time) and reassembles them as the one word uji, often translated in English as being–time or existence–time. As HeeJin Kim writes: Dogen ... transforms such an everyday phrase as arutoki (“at a certain time,” “sometimes,” “there is a time,” “once”) into one of the most important notions in his Zen—uji (“existencetime”). This metamor phosis is executed by way of changing its two components—the aru and the toki—into u (“existence,” “being”) and ji (“time,” “occa sion”), respectively, and recombining them as uji so that it unmistak ably signals the nondual intimacy of existence and time. —Dogen on Meditation and Thinking: A Reflection on his View of Zen This new word uji becomes a shorthand for bundling all aspects of reality into one word/thought: being–time. Being–time embraces many of the key teachings found in Dogen’s writing. Among sev eral words or phrases found in Uji that express these teachings are dharma position (ju-hoi), the fully embodied totality of myriad things/beings as a moment of being–time; continuous practice (gyoji), Notes on Dogen’s Being–Time by Shinshu Roberts PHOTOGRAPHS by DENIS DARZACQ from the series La Chute (The Fall) (2005–2006) ©DENISDARZACQ/AGENCEVU
