You too are perfectly protected. It just isn’t obvious to you.

RIP Harada Tangen Roshi 1924-2018. A simple, kind, happy man, who lived his teaching.
Again, let me explain about the path walked by the ancients.
Love has to be brave enough to drink up the person entirely ― poison and all.
But don’t grasp at the smile — or the flower — or even the words, and most of us do, because we love to attach ourselves to things and meanings, and it’s not about things or meanings.
When I forgot myself, it was exactly like that. There was nothing obtained and nothing was thrown away.
Turn around the light to shine within, then just return. The vast inconceivable source can’t be faced or turned away from.
Meet the ancestral teachers, be familiar with their instructions, bind grasses to build a hut, and don’t give up.
Mumon’s Poem: Hundreds of flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, The cool breeze in summer and snow in winter; If there is no vain cloud in your mind, for you it is a good season.
