No vows. No promises. No oaths.
Rather, remaining in the one we are within.
Be that without wording something other.
Whether meditating or in times of turmoil, the true is his basis.
Vast and clear is his wondrous wisdom.
His words are silent and his actions untrammeled.
In emptiness he does not lose illumination.
(-- Ch'ing-liao, 1088-1151)
Zen points to what is here.
It is Yom Kippur.
Now. Here. This.
