Zen Dojo Zürich

Ryokan b

The place where I spend my days
Is ineffably concealed and mysterious.
No wind – the climbing plants rustle on their own,
No fog – in the bamboo grove it always stays dark.
What is it that makes the torrent gurgle?
All by themselves clouds well up on the mountain.
Sitting at midday in my mountain hut,
It was only then that I realised the brilliance of the sun.
Han Shan
 
If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.

Practising zazen in our disorientated times means returning to the true dimension of being human and finding the underlying balance of your existence once more. 
Taisen Deshimaru 
 
 Keep your mind in equilibrium.
If your mind is in equilibrium, the whole world will be in equilibrium.
