Jay Rinsen Chikyo Weik gives a talk and leads a discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on March 19, 2008.

"Within the dark home of the passions, the sun of wisdom must at all times shine. Erroneous thoughts come because of the passions; when correct thoughts come the passions are cast aside. Use neither the erroneous nor the correct, and with purity you will attain to complete nirvana." -Hui Neng

Jay Rinsen Chikyo Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on March 16, 2008.

"Successive thoughts do not stop; prior thoughts, present thoughts, and future thoughts follow one after the other without cessation. If one instant of thought is cut off, the Dharma body separates from the physical body, and in the midst of successive thoughts there will be no place for attachment to anything. If one instant of thought clings, then successive thoughts cling; this is known as being fettered. If in all things successive thoughts do not cling, then you are unfettered." -Hui-Neng

Jay Rinsen Chikyo Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on March 16, 2008.

"Good friends, how then are meditation and wisdom alike? They are like the lamp and the light it gives forth. If there is a lamp, there is light; if there is no lamp, there is no light. The lamp is the substance of light; the light is the function of the lamp. Thus, although they have two names, in substance they are not two. Meditation and wisdom are also like this." — Hui-Neng

Jay Chikyo Rinsen Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on March 16, 2008.

"Oftentimes in spiritual teaching, there is a great attempt to deny any kind of shadow, or any kind of difficulty, and it's important to acknowledge it.... It makes the teachings more alive and full and complete and real, but also real honest and very direct. The historical context has a direct influence on what these teachings are, and that's important to know and to acknowledge and to understand."
