Yakuzan's Non-thinking--The Practice of Just Sitting

Yakuzan's Non-thinking--The Practice of Just Sitting

Koans of the Way of Reality: Case 99
Essential function of all the Buddhas
Functioning essence of all the ancestors
It is present without thinking
It is completed without interacting.
--Master Hongzhi

When the great Master Yakuzan was in zazen, a monk asked, "What are you thinking sitting so fixedly?" Yakuzan said, "I am thinking not-thinking." The monk asked, "How do you think of not-thinking?" The Master answered, "Non-thinking."

Echoing the teachings of Hongzhi and Dogen--the great Masters of "Silent Illumination Zen"--Abbot John Daido Loori takes an in-depth look at shikantaza: its historical beginnings, its relationship to koan study, the potential difficulties encountered by students, and its power to realize the identity of practice and enlightenment.
