 "To study the Way is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things. To be enlightened by all things is to remove the barriers between one's self and others." ~ ~ Dogen Zenji

        "Of ten things you would say, leave off nine. Like a fan in winter, like a bell hung in the air, not questioning the wind from all directions-this is a characteristic of people of the Way. "~ kaizen

         "May the sound of the bell spread throughout the universe, making darkness bright, relieving the three realms of suffering, shattering swords. May it bring all beings to Enlightenment." ~ ~ Morning Bell Chant, adapted from the Kwan Um School of Zen

    "Creations are numberless; I vow to save them.  Delusions are inexhaustible; I vow to put an end to them. Reality is boundless; I vow to perceive it. The enlightened way is unsurpassable; I vow to embody it." ~~One Heart Sangha Four Vows
