“Thoughts are the endless secretions of our mind.” In this humorous talk, Daido Roshi asks us to examine and relinquish our obsession with thinking, and our tendency to overvalue it. He encourages all practitioners to delve deeply into the practice of zazen, let go of the chattering companions, and liberate their thoughts at their very origin.
