Kodo Sawaki

‘Heaven and earth make offerings. Air, water, plants, animals, and human beings make offerings. All things make offerings to each other. It’s only within this circle of offering that we can live. Whether we appreciate this or not, it’s true.
Without demanding, “Give it to me!” we make and receive offerings. The world in which we give and receive is a serene and beautiful world. It differs from the world of scrambling for things. It’s vast and boundless.’ (The Zen Teachings of Homeless Kodo)
