Koans of the Way of Reality: Case 104
From the beginning, the truth is clear and free of dust. In the valley of the endless spring one sits in silence, observing the forms of integration and disintegration--the impermanent deceptive images of the world can no longer deceive; deluded within enlightenment, enlightened within delusion.

The blue river flows into the great ocean, the green mountain fills the sky.
--from the prologue by Abbot John Daido Loori
This place of peace is the place where we all begin. It is the place where the questions arise and answers dissolve--the original source. It is the heart of our being. How do we find our way there?

corner of this universe? Listen!
