Buddhadharma : Spring 2018
SHINSHU ROBERTS 61 understanding, we find several meanings within each situation: “a particular time–being stands on the highest mountain peak,” “the time when one stands on the highest mountain peak,” “all being(s)– time(s) stand on the highest peak,” or “all time’s being and/or all beings’ time is now standing on the highest peak.” We can read the remaining lines in the same ways. No single thing and no moment of time is left out of this very moment of being–time. DhaRMa position as aLL being–tiMe We can’t really penetrate what Dogen means by being–time if we don’t understand the unique particular moments, things, or events called dharma positions or dharma stages. A dharma position, understood as a unique independent moment, also has multiple aspects, which, when taken together, are being–time. Without under standing the encompassing nature of a dharma position as a being– time and all being–time, we mistakenly experience unique particular moments like the Buddhist parable of the blind men examining an elephant. One man said the ears were like a basket, another said the tusk was a plow’s blade, and a third thought the foot to be a pillar— you get the idea. Since the examiners were blind, not one of them was able to see the whole of the elephant, so they grasped what they could and compared it to something they already knew, not under standing that each thing they touched was a part of a larger unseen whole. From the perspective of nonduality, past, present, and future are present in this moment; yet at the same time each moment must have the freedom to express its individual flavor.
