Buddha mind is born in Buddha mind
Buddha mind grows old in Buddha mind
And, after all, Buddha mind dies in Buddha mind

Because of the karmic nature of language, we have to use dualistic expressions. The truth is: Buddha mind only and nothing else.

When we look at our lives from that point of view, something that is unbearable becomes bearable, something that is unforgivable may become forgivable, gratitude increase, arrogance decreases. After all, this universe is nothing but Buddha mind.

Eido Tai Shimano (1932-2018)
