One day a Vinaya master asked a Zen master:
-How should one practice Tao?
The Zen master replied:
-Eat when you are hungry, sleep when you are tired.
The Vinaya master said:
-Most people do that.
The Zen master...
I don't get that either. From what I read, Dogen equates sitting with enlightenment - probably something to do with knowing when you're snoozing and when you're not - but it isn't that simple. as anyone who can see through the eyelids will testify, and it sure beats open eye surgery.
