Sekkei Harada

‘Of the religions of the world we can say that many or even most are comprised of seams or knots which connect the separation between Man and God, Man and Buddha or between Man and Nature. In truth there is no such borderline, and I would like you to realize that there is no reason such a division should exist. The ego/self has created distance between self and other things and then purposely joined them together again. Consequently if the ego/self is forgotten, one becomes the origin, becomes all things. This is an unmistakable fact.’ (Talks on Yoka Daishi’s “Song of Realization”)

This was another post I retrieved from a recent dive into the Ino’s Blog. I still don’t think these talks have been commercially released, which highlights what a privilege access to the Zen Center library was.
