On our premises we would say, no it is a guy, I’m right!
and the other buddy, says "it seems to me he is not a guy, he is a monk"
A fatchedecon! He is dressed in fashion, he is a samurai, or then he is Chinese! Besides he’s got a Bartez haircut done. Without talking cock!
I’m not talking cock! He impressed me so much that I visited the site, and I adore your work on the Buddha, the dharma and the sangha, which is drunk like fresh and semi-sparkling water!
This says Maître Kosen, although you are one of the rare spiritual researchers who inspires respect to me in the way of meditation.
The meeting of the Eastern world and the Western world is finally felt! We know that all the rivers empty in the ocean, and if one regards as non-form or vacuum, why wouldn’t the rivers get dressed in vacuum! With the color of reality.
Despite everything the respect that I do have of the various ways to reach the awakening and of all the Masterswho dropped in this earth, Jesus, Mahomet, Buddha, Krisnha, Amma, among others... In spite of the immense respect I have for Master Deshimaru, why do we feel obliged to caricature the Easterners, such as Tibetan clothes like Matthieu Ricard, Japanese style, very beautiful costumes, Hindu saris, and all that? where is thus our freedom, our independence and our creativity??? Meditating in the deep respect of all the sensitive beings, in they way for the awakening and the peace of all!
Even Buddha himself didn’t he asked to accept things only after having dissolved them like gold and to accept them for gold in the knowledge of things.
Answer from Master Kosen
If one travels in the Buddhist worlds, the Kesa is what there is best.
But that isn’t a clothing in fashion, it’s like the color of the trees, neither young, nor old.
It is made to practice zazen and it’s true masterpiece, at the same time poor and invaluable.
