- "Subhuti, what do you say? Does a rabbit with horns exist, or not?"
- "Venerable One, it does not really exist, but has been falsely conceived by some, therefore, to them at least, it does."
- "Excellent, Subhuti. It is just like this. A mortal world has been falsely conceived by some and to them exists, but we know it does not."
- "Subhuti, what do you think? If a young buck like yourself were as generous with your sexual attentions with as many widows -- "
- "as there are sand grains in the Ganges, using as many erect cocks as there are stars in the sky, would this be a lot?"
- "Plenty, Venerable Master." "Well, Subhuti, memorizing just one verse of this Dried Shit Zen Sutra will get you even more merit than that!"
- Nobody knows what the mind is. This is simply a fact. But Buddha went further. He said that it is impossible to "know" what mind is.
- What is mind? Where is your mind right now? What is it doing? Can you find it?
- Why would you merely trust what a Guru or Rinpoche or Roshi tells you about the mind, and senselessly repeat his or her words?
- There is always the path of direct realization, whereby your original nature becomes manifest to you in a striking way free of "teachings."
- But nobody wants to follow this path. Instead, you'll pick up on somebody saying something and get excited.
- "Wow! Mind is luminous!" Yes, if you realized it for yourself, that word "luminous" might have some meaning.
- "Dried shit is the original Buddha! That's so funny and so apt!" If only you knew.
- It doesn't matter who is "ahead of" or "behind" you in terms of realization. This is all just delusion, false conceiving.
- After all, the mind you have to realize is the mind as it's working in you. Right now. Whether it's the "same" as Universal Mind: who knows?
- Knowing something intellectually is a very dim shadow of instantaneous realization.
- @ArielBravy. Keep it cool, baby. Watch it and enjoy it but always be cool.
- This is a tweet about this precious opportunity -- this human life. I will say no more.
- A monk asked: "Not producing a single thought, can there be any fault?" Yunmen answered, "Mount Sumeru."
- Whatever marvelous awakening you experience, it's all going to come back to living an everyday life. Isn't that fantastic?
