Song Of Freedom Breakdown, lines 43-45
Don’t lose your Zen whether walking or sitting, be at ease in speech or silence, moving or staying,
Be calm even when facing a sword and your clarity will never be poisoned.
Our teacher Sakyamuni met his teacher Dipamkara only after practicing patience through countless eons.
Admonishment not to loose your Zen seems to be a re-occurring theme. Just be mindful.
Be mindful in any situation.
Dipamkara is supposedly Gotama Buddha’s teacher. Maybe Dipamkara is everyone’s teacher. Not abstractly, but directly.
I welcome comments, but I may integrate them into the commentary.
I hope that my efforts are helpful in clearing my own delusion as well as that of others, I recognise that I set myself up as a kind of teacher here in this commentary, I am not your zen master, you are!
