禅のこころ 高祖、太祖両尊の仏法は申すまでもなく「只管打坐」をその根源とし、そこから自在に展開して行く、所謂仏道であります。真実の教えも実践が伴わなければ空論に帰してしまいます。「真理」という言葉はあっても、見ることも聞くことも出来ません。見えるものより見えないものの方がはるかに多いことを知らねばなりません。そして見えない真理や道理を信ずることが大事なのです。

仏道は申すに及ばす、あらゆる宗教は人やものの生命を大切にすることが基本ですが、昨今の世相を見るとき、人心の荒廃は、その極に達しているように思われます。物質文明のすさまじい発展の陰で「心」が置き去りにされた感があります。「心外無別法」と申す、お釈迦さまは「心」を説かれました。誠を尽くすことが「心」です。「誠は天の道也、これを誠にするは人の道也」とも申します。
 
両祖の仏法は、実践してこそ花開き、実を結びます。だから「仏道」と申します。


The representative of both Daihonzan, Eiheiji and Sojiji. It goes without saying that the root of Dogen Zenji and Keizan Zenji’s Buddha-dharma was Shikantaza. It was because they were able to freely develop this that it is called the Way of Buddha. If the teaching is true, but it is not accompanied with actual practice, then it simply ends up being empty theory. Even if there is a word for “Truth,” Truth is something that cannot be seen or heard. You must know that there are many more things that cannot be seen that things which can be seen. It is also very important to have faith in Truth and principles that we cannot see.
It hardly needs to be said that the basis Buddhism, as well as religions, is to treat all living things, including people, with great care. And yet looking at recent social conditions, it seems to me that we have reached the nadir of moral decay and desolation of the human sprit. I feel it is because of the dreadful way material civilization has developed that the human spirit (kokoro) has been left behind. Shakyamuni Buddha’s teaching was about the mind, the heart, and the spirit as expressed in the teaching “There is no Buddha-dharma outside the mind.” “Mind” or “Kokoro” is to be thoroughly sincere and faithful. It is also said that “Sincerity is Way of Heaven, to be sincere is the Way of people.”

It is through the actual practice of Dogen Zenji and Keizan Zenji’s teaching that the flower blooms and fruit is produced. That is why it is called the Way of Buddha.
