‘Needless to say, dharma cannot be grasped with the intellect. But if it is completely incomprehensible, we should not bother to talk about it at all. We have to understand, at least intellectually, why buddha-dharma cannot be grasped with the intellect. Otherwise it becomes complete nonsense.’ (Commentary on Bendowa)
I should probably stick this on-screen as a permanent reminder as we launch into a four-week examination of the Bendowa ‘at’ Zen Center.
