Jay Chikyo Weik presents a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on February 17th, 2008.

"There is no need to seek the truth - just put a stop to your opinions! Dualistic constructs don't endure, so take care not to pursue them. As soon as positive and negative arise, the mind is lost in confusion. The two exist because of the one, but don't cling to oneness either..."

Jay Chikyo Weik presents a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on February 17th, 2008.

"Mind has the totality of space: nothing lacking, nothing extra. It's just selecting and rejecting that make it seem otherwise. Don't pursue worldly concerns, don't dwell passively in emptiness; in the peace of absolute identity, confusion vanishes by itself. Suppressing activity to reach stillness just creates agitation..."

Apr 12, 2008

Jay Chikyo Weik presents a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on February 17th, 2008.

"The Supreme Way is not difficult; it just precludes picking and choosing. Without yearning or loathing, the Way is perfectly apparent, while even a hairbreadth difference separates heaven and earth. To see the Way with your own eyes, quit agreeing and disagreeing. The battling of likes and dislikes - that's the disease of the mind..."

Jay Chikyo Weik presents a talk and leads a discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on February 13th, 2008.

"The Ultimate Truth is Beyond words. Doctrines are words, they are not the Way. The Way is wordless. Words are illusions; they are no different from things that appear in your dreams at night..." -Bodhidharma's Bloodstream Sermon.

Jay Chikyo Weik presents a talk and leads a discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on January 30th, 2008.

"Our Nature is the Mind, and the Mind is our Nature. This nature is the same as the mind of all buddhas. Buddhas of the past and future only transmit this mind. Beyond this mind, there is no Buddha anywhere..." -Bodhidharma's Bloodstream Sermon.

Apr 3, 2008

Jay Chikyo Weik presents a talk and leads a discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on January 23rd, 2008.

"Everything that appears in the three realms comes from the mind, hence the Buddhas of the past and future teach mind to mind, without bothering about definitions."

"But if they don't define it, what do they mean by Mind?"

"You Ask, That's Your Mind. I Answer, That's My Mind..."
-Bodhidharma's Bloodstream Sermon.
