‘Dizang saw a monastic coming and held up a whisk.
The monastic bowed.
Dizang said, “What did you see that made you bow?”
The monastic said, “I thanked you for your instruction.”
Dizang hit the monastic and said, “You saw me hold up the whisk and thanked me. Why don’t you thank me when you see me sweep the ground every day?”‘ (Shinji Shobogenzo)

  1. I should thank everyone that I see. It is very hard to be human. We all struggle. We all try to be happy We all want to be respected. But when you cross paths with big mind you better stop and do ten thousand deep bows. This is the original. This is the source. No counterfeit here.
