bluejay – me

Posted on mrt 25, 2017

‘When you practice zazen more, you can accept things as your own, whatever it is. That is actually the teaching of, you know, famous teaching of Kegon-jiji-muge. Jiji-muge means “being has no,” you know, “no barrier, no disturbance.” It-it, you know-interrelated closely. And it is difficult to say, “This is bird, and this is me,” because it is interrelated very closely. So it is difficult to separate bluejay from me. That is jiji-muge.’
