Quotable Quotes

Many Japanese use the word Zen, but very few understand what it really is. Zen sees the whole universe as one's own true self. It says that heaven, earth, and man grew from the same root and everything in this world is interrelated.

- Nyogen Senzaki

The stillness in stillness is not the real stillness; only when there is stillness in movement can the spiritual rhythm appear which pervades all heaven and earth.

- Saikontan

Every existing thing sentient or non-sentient, is holy in essence. From this realization arises the certainty that everything and everyone, no matter how lowly or how depraved, intrinsically is Buddha, is destined for salvation, will ultimately realize Buddhahood.

- Ruth Fuller Sasaki

Enlightenment is not imagining figures of light but making the darkness conscious.

- Carl Gustav Jung
