We cannot see the full moon through the thick clouds. However, we can witness
the Buddha mind, which is compared to the clear cool full moon.
Zazen is named “Buddha Mind Seal.” When we are sealed by it, karma winds
and waves, and mundane dust and dirt are sealed off by it.
Only actual solid sitting in the Buddha Mind Seal, can we actualize nirvana,
unconditioned peace, and bodhi, awakening, to the true Dharma.
Dogen’s saying that awakening is attained by the body, not by the mind,
testifies this truth of actual embodiment.
