Jay Rinsen Chikyo Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on April 20, 2008.

"Let others criticise you. Let them condemn you. Trying to set the sky on fire, they'll just end up exhausted. I hear abusive words as though I were drinking ambrosia; everything melts, and suddenly I enter the inconceivable. When you understand the real value of abuse, your worst critic becomes a wise friend. If harsh words raise no waves of bitterness or pride, how better to show the persistence and compassion of the unborn?" -Yung-Chia

Jay Rinsen Chikyo Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on April 20, 2008.

"Haven't you met someone seasoned in the Way of Ease, a person with nothing to do and nothing to master, who neither rejects thought nor seeks truth? The real nature of ignorance is buddha-nature itself. The empty, illusory body is the very body of the Dharma. When the Dharma-body is realized, there's nothing at all. The original nature of all things is innately Buddha." —Yung-Chia

Jay Rinsen Chikyo Weik gives a talk and leads a discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on April 16, 2008.

"Coming from a Judeo-Christian theistically-based approach, there's an unconscious assumption -- or teaching, basically -- that moral and ethical guidelines come from someplace outside... something outside saying, 'This is what I expect.' In the teachings of the Buddhadharma, the moral and ethical precepts do not come from any outside source.... The moral and ethical teachings are expressions of how a realized Buddha lives their life. They are the description of how an awakened being interacts with themself and with others and with society."
