Dogen

‘After we arouse bodhi-mind and wholeheartedly practice the difficult practice, even though we practice, we cannot hit the mark even once out of one hundred times. And yet, we can hit the mark while we practice with our teachers and with scriptures. Hitting the mark at this present moment is enabled by the strength of one hundred attempts which were off the mark. One hundred practices which were off the mark enable us to become mature.’ (Shobogenzo Sesshin Sessho)
