Death: Radical change

Who dies?



Mind and Body

Neither Mind nor Body

Who lives?

If there is no attachment to living,
there can be no fear of death.

Consciousness can cease.

Awareness was never born.

To find the way to the light,
you must go to the darkness.

The hidden door of nirvana,
lies just within samsara.

Look at consciousness,
and you will find awareness.

Release the object,
and the subject will vanish.

And please:

Do it NOW.

Institutional Buddhism: Jail

Buddha has nothing to do with TEMPLES.

Buddha has nothing to do with PRIESTS.

Buddha has nothing to do with DOGMAS.

Buddha has nothing to do with RITUALS.


Zen masters are not PRIESTS.

Zen masters have no RELIGION to PREACH.

Zen is not about SITTING like a rock.

Buddha is Zen.
