The teaching of the mind ground
Is the basis of Zen study.
The mind ground is
The great awareness
Of being as is.

Master Seung Sahn taught that
"Zen mind is not Zen mind."
He encouraged his students
to abandon narrow ideas of Zen
and hang on only to the question,
"What is the best way of helping other people?"

If you do not spontaneously
Trust yourself sufficiently,
You will be in a frantic state,
Pursuing all sorts of objects
And being changed
By those objects,
Unable to be independent.
— Linji (d.867)

What I point out to you
Is only that
You shouldn’t allow yourselves
To be confused by others.
Act when you need to,
Without further hesitation or doubt.
— Linji (d. 827)

To realize Mind,
Begin by looking
For the source of your thoughts.
Whether asleep or working,
Standing or sitting,
Intensely ask yourself,
"What is my mind?"
— Bassui
