Buddhadharma : Summer 2005
buddhadharma| 33 |summer 2005 CHApTER XII The Master addressed the monks: “Followers of the Way, it is urgently necessary for you to attain true insight. Then you can avoid being deluded by a bunch of spirits and you can walk freely under heaven. The noble person is all done (buji). Just don’t strive! Just be natural. You search outside among the alleyways, trying to get some helping hand. Make no mistake! You are wrong! You want to seek Buddha – Buddha’s just a name. Do you know who is seeking? The reason why bud- dhas and patriarchs of the three periods and the ten directions appear is simply for the Dharma. You, followers of the Way today, also are here for the Dharma. Understand Dharma and you are done. If not, you will go on transmigrating through the five paths of existence. What is Dharma? Dharma is Mind. Mind-Dharma has no form, yet penetrates through the ten directions, revealing right in front of your eyes. Because of your insufficient faith you rely on names and phrases, you search for Buddhadharma in written words and speculate. You are as far away from it as heaven is from earth. “Followers of the Way, when this mountain monk preaches the Dharma, what kind of Dharma do I present? I present the Mind-based Dharma. It can freely enter the secular and the sacred, the pure and the defiled, sages and commoners. It is not you who are sages or commoners, secular or sacred. But rather, it is you who apply categories of sage and commoner, secular and sacred to everything. However, those categories of sage and commoner, secular and sacred cannot give peace to this person. Followers of the Way, grasp and use them, but never be attached to names. This is called the mysterious principle. “This mountain monk’s Dharma teaching is different from that of every other person under heaven. Suppose Manjusri and Samantabhadra were to manifest before me asking about the Dharma. The moment they say, ‘Osho (Heshang), may I ask ...,’ I would immediately see through them. In the same way, when this old monk is sitting regally and a follower of the Way comes to confront me, I see through him or her completely. Why is this so? Because my insight is different. Externally, I am not fooled by secular and sacred. Internally, I do not dwell in the absolute. I see penetratingly, and I have no trace of doubt.” CHApTER XIII The Master addressed the monks, saying, “Followers of the Way, as to Buddhadharma, no artificial effort is necessary. Just be natural, don’t strive (buji). Master Rinzai by Hakuin Ekaku Zenji RepRoducedwiththepeRmissionoftheReveRendZenshomiYataofjoko-ji
