Zen Stories ☯

A university student while visiting Gasan asked him: “Have you even read the Christian Bible?”

“No, read it to me,” said Gasan.

The student opened the Bible and read from St. Matthew: “And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They toil not, neither do they spin, and yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these…Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.”

Gasan said: “Whoever uttered those words I consider and enlightened man.”

The student continued reading: “Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh, is shall be opened.”

Gasan remarked: “That is excellent. Whoever said that is not far from Buddhahood.”

Günaydın! Have a great week! Passe une bonne semaine!

Kalbinizi gülümseten görüntülerin, misss kokulu anların içinde soluklanacağınız,

Harika yiyeceklerin tadına bakıp, enfes melodiler işiteceğiniz,

Hangisinin birbirinden güzel olduğuna karar veremeyeceğiniz ve her biri için şükran duyacağınız anlarla dolu bir hafta sizi bekliyor olsun.

içinizdeki huzurun ve verdiği hazzın hiç eksilmemesi, ve çevrenize yayılması dileğiyle.

I wish you a glorious week full of moments that you can; breate in sweet smell, taste deslicious foods, listen delightful melodies, be in the place that makes your heart smile and feel the grace, truely appretiate each of them.

Hope your positive vibration shine over you and spread all around.

Passe une bonne semaine!
