This is the Buddhist life and the Zen life, as I understand it…

This is the Buddhist life and the Zen life, as I understand it; a life lived in full realization of who we really are and what this world we live in really is; a life lived simply, naturally, spontaneously, and awarely; a life dedicated to infinite gratitude to the past, infinite gratitude and service to the present, and infinite responsibility to the future. Such a life is truly a religious life, and toward such a life Zen teaching and discipline lead us. Yes, truly, Zen is a religion.
