Katagiri Roshi

‘The bodhisattva vow to save all sentient beings isn’t based on an evaluation. It’s not thinking that all sentient beings need to be saved based on ideas of good or bad, right or wrong. A bodhisattva vows to save all sentient beings because most people don’t know where they are. We are already in the ocean of Buddha’s world, but we don’t know where the water is. We are confused.  We are already great beings, but we don’t realize it, so we create problems.’ (Each Moment is the Universe)

To be filed alongside the Dogen and Daido Loori from earlier in the week.
