    Universal bowing

    As I was making my way to school in the streets of Kita Senri gently swept by a slow snow, this came:

    Leaves, snowflakes, even hairs
    They all do
    Shin jin datsu raku


    Gassho


    Taigu


    PS: Shin jin datsu raku is the famous sentence found in Dogen s work and it means: to throw away body and mind, body and mind dropped.

    It all begins when we say, “I”. Everything that follows is illusion.
