Question

For some months, I have been noticing that a lot of people practice zazen alone at
home, without going to a dojo, without master. Some people too, who used to
practice in the dojo, left it and are now practicing alone at home.
I cannot understand. Why is it like this ?

Answer from Master Kosen

Let people do what they want and continue the true practice in the dojo.
People want to use zazen for their own ego, instead of letting go of it for the
authentic practice. They will arrive nowhere and simply end up by stopping
zazen even at home.

Strange is really the way which drives to the Cold Mount We see no beaten track, no trace of hoof. The valleys meander to lost of sight, The summits sparkle of dew and the pines mutter under the wind Did you not understand yet? Reality asks the way to the shadow.
