Question

I’m surprised that you don’t answer to my last question, Master. I thought it had a meaning. I write it again, maybe it wasn’t clear: How to distinguish the most brilliant state where leads us the meditation from the frenzy? Does the meditation lead you also towards an euphoria comparable to the psychosis?

Please excuse me, I didn’t understood your silence.

Thank you for your answer and for inventing the electronic mondo and also for your web site

It is not about criteria of normality inculcated by the society, but felt in the very deep of one as peace and enjoyment and full consciousness. The psychosis is neither quiet nor joyful, it makes sometimes very aware but that is the vague and very agitated consciousness which oscillates between the more and the less.

However the essence of the aspect is beyond the aspect or beyond the not aspect, ‘beyond’ meaning containing immediately 2 aspects: aspect and non-aspect. Isn’it so that the buddha can be seen. So isn’t zazen beyond the aspect ...
