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.

"The Way is perfect like vast space / where nothing is lacking and nothing is in excess. / Indeed, it is due to our choosing to accept or reject / that we do not see the true nature of things." -Seng T'san, Faith Mind

Jay Chikyo Weik offers a presentation entitled, "Obstacles to Practice," given at the Toledo Zen Center on December 2, 2007.

"Typically, what are taught as being the primary challenges or the main difficulties have to do with the six realms. In the center of those realms, there are three poisons that are providing the gravity that's holding these beings in these various realms of suffering. What those three poisons are called are Greed, Anger, and Ignorance."

Feb 1, 2008

Jay Chikyo Weik offers a presentation entitled, "Obstacles to Practice," given at the Toledo Zen Center on December 2, 2007.

"Today, our mission is to talk a little bit about the things that might get in the way of maintaining a spiritual practice; now that we have a sense of what the practice is, what kind of things arise that actually get in the way and obstruct and hinder us in that effort; and then some solutions. What can we do to help that?"

Jay Chikyo Weik offers a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on November 28, 2007.

"For reasons as varied as the people who have them, we have a really hard time letting ourselves be. We find it almost impossible to just not be so aggressive with ourselves.... If you are sitting on that cushion and you have some subtle or overt aggressive gaining agenda... it's just a matter of time before you give the whole endeavor up. And probably you'd be better served to give it up, if that's what you're practicing. Better yet, to learn how to practice well; to practice with real sincerity."

Jan 4, 2008

Jay Chikyo Weik offers a talk and discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on November 21, 2007.

"From Master Dogen's Bodhidharma Shisoho: 'Giving means non greed.' This has to do with not just a physical thing.... In the dharma, the giving can be vastly more encompassing than material things. 'Giving means non-greed. Non-greed means not to covet. Not to covet means not to curry favor.... It is to give away unneeded belongings to someone you don’t know, to offer flowers blooming on a distant mountain to the womb of suchness itself, or to offer treasures you had in your former life to sentient beings.'"
