Example text

But Zen’s antiquity simply doesn’t affect its truth. We can learn a lot from living Zen, as much as anyone ever did in any country, in any century. We can learn to be, to relish life, to live each moment perfectly. We can learn a few other things helpful to our lives, too. They include the lessons in the following sections. Moderation in All Things The Buddha himself, Siddhartha Gautama (see Chapter 2), proclaimed the importance of the Middle Way. After living a privileged life of luxury, then spending years being an extremely deprived ascetic, the Buddha discovered that moderation is the only way to find true balance and the best way to live fully and with a complete and mindful awareness.

Zen is for anyone. We like that. Monkey Mind! Some books on Zen can make you feel like Zen is only for people who understand it. Forget that! Trying to understand is not Zen. Shunryu Suzuki may have said it best (in Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind): “There is no need to remember what I say; there is no need to understand what I say. You understand; you have full understanding within yourself. ” Illogical Logic Those among us who fancy ourselves intellectuals are particularly challenged by Zen’s illogical brand of logic.

They cover the primary problem humans encounter, why they encounter it, and how to overcome it. We’ll talk about them in more detail later, as they are relevant. Here, we’ll just sketch them out for you. ➤ The first noble truth is that living means experiencing dukkha. Dukkha is the Sanskrit word for discontent, dissatisfaction, suffering, and fear, whether from something tangible or something we can’t quite put a finger on. It is the condition of human existence, the feeling that something just isn’t right.
