Buddhadharma : Spring 2018
SHINSHU ROBERTS 69 Dogen associates both dharma positions with realization. He writes in Kai-in-zanmai (“Ocean Seal Samadhi”): Encountering the buddha face ... is nothing other than fully recog nizing myriad things as myriad things. Because myriad things are allinclusive, you do not merely stand atop the highest peak or travel along the bottom of the deepest ocean. Being allinclusive is just like this; letting go is just like this. —translation by Kazuaki Tanahashi, Treasury of the True Dharma Eye: Master Dogen’s Shobo Genzo Both the mountain peak and the ocean floor are the territory of realization. “The buddha face” is our life seeing the true nature of “myriad things.” Even if you are on the mountaintop or at the bot tom of the ocean, the myriad things, times, beings, and events are never absent in your present now. Actualizing this place includes the peak and the ocean floor, and at the same time it has the indepen dent nature of making oneself present for the “right now” of either state without holding on to anything. For the time being, I’m three heads and eight arms. For the time being, I’m eight feet or sixteen feet. We again seem to have two ends of the spectrum. There is the being with three heads and eight arms: the demon of delusion. Opposed to this image is the golden body of the buddha, often described as six teen feet or eight feet tall. If we look more closely at Dogen’s teaching on these two apparent opposites, we find that he writes later in Uji: So even that threeheaded, eightarmed creature makes a passage as my being–time. Although it might seem as if it were somewhere else far away, it is the time right now. The sixteenfoot Buddhabody also makes a passage as my being–time. Although it might seem as if it were somewhere else over there, it is the time right now. opposite | La chute n° 16 ©DENISDARZACQ/AGENCEVU
