More than 2,500 years ago, Sakyamuni said, 'have anybody seen Brahma (you call 
it initiator)?. If not, how do you justify 'connection' with it?

Subject: [Zen] What kind of practice is Chan?
Date: Sunday, 19 September, 2010, 2:14 AM


Good morning to all,

As we all know, 

Chan is taught without words.  
Chan is the direct experience of the reality.  
Chan is not two or Chan is one.What kind of practice is Chan really? How do we 
describe it without words?  

I have come to realize that it is a pure experience and a real time 
experience.  Chan is a direct connection to the "initiator" embedded in every 
form at every moment.  Instead of observing the form, we can connect to the 
"initiator" of every form.

Since this experience is completely internal, personal and formless, it just 
can not be described by words.  For ease of communication, I called it "pure 
spiritual practice".  

While this "pure spiritual practice" is completely formless, internal and 
personal, however it is reflected, described, labeled externally is not IT.  
Some call it "Just This", or "As Is", or "Suchness"...  In fact we can call it 
anything we want, as long as we realize at the same time, it is not what it is 

Let us all Experience the Now.
