Good morning Master Kosen,
Reading along the questions-answers, I get a question: How could Master Deshimaru bring back a kesa from Japan as there is no kesa? Is everything not proceeding from KU?
The reality, it seems to me, is that the kesa has been transmitted because I do zazen now and that I have never been in Japan. I am preoccupied from a long time by this question: what is my own nature? In which direction shall I look for to discover it and open this door? The non intellectual or analytical introspection: from the domain of the feeling I am given a striking answer where it is about equilibrium, middle, concensus. I have a lot of trouble accepting that?
Shall I look for it more or accept this answer?



Answer from Master Kosen

Ku is not the negation of what exists but the true nature of what exists is ku.
