Answer from Master Kosen
The comparison with paragliding is not completely idiotic because if you fall asleep while paragliding, you kill yourself, it is true. Master Kodo Sawaki said: "zazen must be like a struggle to death". When you enter the dojo, when you are going to practice zazen, if you are sincere and practice truly, you should have as much attention as while doing paragliding. At this time, sleep does not come.
