-I am a new comer, please be kind to tell me where I can enter the Zen gate.
Gensha... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: THE THREE MARKS OF EXISTENCE ARE CONFLICTING
vertical line Posted on Sep.21.2013 @ 06:49PM EDT by leoj99

The three marks of existence are conflicting. Why?
The marks of existence are .. Impermanence, Suffering and No-self.

So if No-Self is everything is nothing... so who will or what will be impermanent.. who will then be suffering...?

vertical line Who will be suffering?

That is a good question.
Now begin to look for an answer.
Stop making statements without thinking about it.
Look for the truth behind those things and many other things will be revealed.

While you are living, you have the chance to learn the truth of your life.
If you keep playing with the words then scrambled will be your destiny.

You don't have to be a Zen teacher to give encouragement.
Peers often help each other by giving encouragement or cheering them on.
I wish you luck.
