“sitting in the Zen-dō and smiling is a revolutionary act
smiling means having sovereignty over yourself
Body, speech, and mind in perfect oneness.
I send my heart along with the sound of the bell.
May the hearers awaken from forgetfulness and transcend all anxiety and sorrow.
the sound of the bell is like the cool voice of the buddha
calling us back to our true self.
And not a buddha outside of yourself;
your own buddha, your own buddha nature”
