Tatsugami Roshi

‘The Paramita Sutra, or the Heart Sutra, which we chant every morning, says that there is no obstacle for the mind (‘shin mu kei ge’). From where do the obstacles come? You yourself create them.  You fall into a trap set by yourself.  There is no better way to attain freedom from this trap than for you to free yourself.  That, in fact, is the only way.’ (Lecture given at Tassajara)
