Buddhadharma : Spring 2012
1 When all dharmas are buddhadharma, there are delusion, realization, practice, birth and death, buddhas and sentient beings. 2 When the myriad dharmas are without a self, there is no delusion, no realization, no Buddha, no sentient being, no birth and death. 3 The Buddha Way, basically, is leaping clear of abundance and lack; thus there are birth and death, delusion and realization, sentient beings and buddhas. Yet in attachment blossoms just fall, and in aversion weeds just spread. 4 To carry the self forward and illuminate myriad dharmas is delusion. That myriad dharmas come forth and illuminate the self is enlightenment. 5 Those who have great realization of delusion are buddhas; those who are greatly deluded about realization are sentient beings. Further, there are those who continue realizing beyond realization, who are in delusion through delusion. 6 When buddhas are truly buddhas, they do not necessarily notice that they are buddhas. However, they are actualized buddhas, who go on actualizing Buddha. 7 When you see forms or hear sounds fully engaging body-and-mind, you intuit dharmas intimately. Unlike things and their reflections in the mirror, and unlike the moon and its reflection in the water, when one side is illuminated, the other side is dark. 8 To study the Buddha Way is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be actualized by myriad things. When actualized by myriad things, your body and mind as well as the bodies and minds of others drop away. No trace of enlightenment remains, and this no-trace continues endlessly. The Genjo Koan Dogen’s seminal teaching, translated by Robert Aitken and Kazuaki Tanahashi. SPRING 2 0 1 2 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 31
