A Zen Life of Dogen – 道元禅師法語 -2

 

道元禅師法語 

時有客來,烹茶聊天,胸中新竹去舊俗;
閑無俗事,洗缽品泉,回甘起舞弄落花 

—–道元禅師法語(1200—1253),日本曹洞宗的鼻祖——-    

道元禅師26岁,公元1225元,于天童山如净禅师的门下身心脱落
道元解脱了出家求法以来一切宗教上的疑惑,完成了一生参学的大事
即所谓完成对自己的研究,体认得眼横鼻直   
 

A Zen Life     

Once upon a time
There often comes my guests,  
Chatted while tea keeps cooking,
Mind is inspired by the new born bamboo which helps eliminating the old habits.  

Life is easy and care-free,
The bowl is cleansed for sipping the fountain water,
Tasty flavor lasts thus could joyfully dance around and play with falling flowers.    

——–Japanese Zen Master Dogen ———–
