Kobun Chino

‘From the very first zazen, even if you live full of delusions and problems from the sprouting of your great compassion, your zazen becomes zazen. Your physical body is the ground where knowledge and understanding arise. They are not given to you, but discovered from you, as you receive or reflect on teaching. Otherwise, there is no teaching coming to you. The treasure is within you. Teaching doesn’t come from outside of you. Your heart beat, your breathing, are not all that are within you, some cosmic reality is there and you are experiencing it.’ (Embracing Mind)
