Shinshu Roberts

‘Connecting with and understanding the nature of all being-time could not be more relevant to our situation as world citizens. Realization itself is not divorced from everyday life, not is it divorced from our connection with all of earth’s denizens. This is the Bodhisattva Path as Dogen envisioned it. A bodhisattva’s vow is to save all beings. All beings are the entire universe and each particular thing. To “save” is to reintegrate oneself with all of being-time: each and every one and each and every thing throughout time and space. How could we think this is not relevant to our own situation?’ (Being-Time)
