Question

Maître, croyez-vous que la voie du Zen soit le seul chemin qui conduit à la réalisation de soi ou à liberté spirituelle ? Car il existe à mon point de vue tant d'écoles, de disciplines qui prônent ce résultat ; et l'on dirait que je suis attiré par plusieurs disciplines et groupes à la fois. Merci

Denis Blondeau












Answer from Master Kosen

The realization is everywhere. Everything is the realization of the self. Our self is not limited but the realization is not something particular. It manifests itself here and now, at each moment. The self realizes itself always new.

Zen is the specific realization of the dimension of Buddha which exists in ourselves. But everything in the universe is only a question of a fulcrum, to exist, to be revealed, everything must rest on a fulcrum. For example, movement rests on immobility, that is why in zazen we should not move. During zazen, if we want to discover the inner world, the world of the mind, the fulcrum is the body.

Master, do you believe that the way of Zen is the only way which conducts to the realization of the self or to the spiritual freedom ?
