Kodo Sawaki

‘Zazen is to sit down desiring nothing. We speak of eternity, but according to the Way of the Buddha, eternity is to practice here and now. If I succeed in making you understand this in the deepest part of yourself, you will not live in darkness until you’re fifty! But unless you grasp this essential point, you cannot follow the Way of the Budda. Zazen is also to practice the precepts here and now. Now! Now! Now! Life is a succession of”now.”‘ (Commentary on The Song Of Awakening)
