Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on February 18, 2009.

Walking is Chan, and sitting is Chan.
Speaking or silent, moving or still,
The essence is at peace.
Even under threat of sword and spear,
It's undisturbed.
Even a cup of poison won't destroy this serenity.
--Yung Chia, "Song of Realizing the Way"

This single perfect nature pervades all natures;
The sole universal dharma encompasses all dharmas.
One moon shines in the water everywhere
And all the reflected moons are just that one moon.

Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on February 4, 2009.

A genuine follower of the mahayana bodhisattva path is neither attached to the world nor attached to liberation from it; neither filled with desire nor filled with aversion. She or he will not cling to or run away from anything.
--Chan Master Sheng-yen

Jay Rinsen Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on January 25, 2009.

On the fifth day after the rise of spring,
Everywhere the season's gracious attitudes!
The white sun gradually lengthening its course;
The blue-gray clouds hanging as though they would fall.
The last icicle breaking into splinters of jade;
The new stems marshalling red sprouts.
The things I meet are full of gladness:
It is not only I who love the spring.
To welcome the flowers, I stand in the back garden;
To enjoy the sunlight, I sit under the front eaves.
Yet still in my heart, there lingers one regret:
Soon I shall part with the flame of my red stove!
--Po Chu'i

Jay Rinsen Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on January 25, 2009.

"For restful thoughts, one does not need space;
The room where I lie is 10 foot square.
By the western eaves, above the bamboo twigs,
From my couch, I can see the white mountain rise.
But the clouds that hover on its far distant peak
Bring shame to a face that is buried in the world's dust."
--Po Chu'i

Jay Rinsen Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on January 25, 2009.

"It's said that [Po Chu'i] would read every one of his poems to an uneducated person... but he would make sure that it made sense to people, that at least it was comprehensible in some way. He held to a Confucian ideal that said that poetry is, at some level or other, to educate... not simply just for idle entertainment."

Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on January 14, 2008.

All evil karma committed by me since of old
Because of my beginningless greed, anger, and ignorance
Born of my body, mouth, and thought
Now I atone for it all.

Dec 1, 2009
Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk at a Zazenkai with the Toledo Zen Center, held at Lourdes College on December 13, 2008.

"I talked in the opening comments about meticulous clarity, meticulous effort, precise practice. This is a very, very important part of our training, of our Way. There's a kind of precision that's being asked for, that's being pointed to.... It takes a while to actually find yourself and to be able to sit clearly. And it matters."

Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on December 10, 2008.

"There is no self and no person; how, then, kinfolk and stranger? I beg you, cease going from lecture to lecture. It is better to seek the truth directly."
-- Layman Pang

Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on December 3, 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 hair's breadth difference separates heaven and earth. To see The Way with your own eyes, quit agreeing and disagreeing. The battle of likes and dislikes is the disease of the mind."

--Seng-ts'an, "Relying on Mind"

Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on November 26, 2008.

"The teachings of the Three Vehicles all cure diseases such as greed and hatred. Right now, thought after thought, if you have such sickness as greed or hatred, you should first cure them. Don't seek intellectual understanding of meanings and expressions. Understanding is in the province of desire, and desire turns into disease. Right now, just detach from all things, existent or nonexistent, and even detach from detachment."
- Pai Chang

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

"In reading scriptures and studying the doctrines, you should turn all words right around, and apply them to yourself."
- Pai Chang

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

"This principle is originally present in everyone. All the Buddhas and bodhisattvas may be called people pointing out a jewel. Fundamentally, it is not a thing - you don't need to know or understand it, you don't need to affirm or deny it. Just cut off dualism; cut off the supposition 'it exists' and the supposition 'it does not exist.' Cut off the supposition 'it is nonexistent' and the supposition 'it is not nonexistent.' When traces do not appear on either side, then neither lack nor sufficiency, neither profane nor holy, not light or dark. This is not having knowledge, yet not lacking knowledge, not bondage, not liberation. It is not any name or category at all. Why is this not true speech? How can you carve and polish emptiness to make an image of Buddha? How can you say that emptiness is blue, yellow, red or white?"
