Jakusho Kwong

‘In a Zen temple or monastery collecting garbage is one of the most important jobs. When we pick up papers or garbage, we have to understand that we are also picking up the garbage inside our own minds. The words outside and inside are two ways of describing one thing. Since our thoughts and dualistic understanding are a kind of littering in our mind, when we pick one up, we pick both up in the same way. Do you understand?’ (No Beginning, No End)
