Roshi

1914 - 1982

A Quote by Taisen Deshimaru Roshi on buddhism, confidence, egotism, goals, guidance, knowledge, memory, mountains, wisdom, and path

Following the Smell of Flowers As told by Taisen Deshimaru Roshi A master was walking in the mountains. When he came back, one of his disciples asked him: "Master, where do you go to walk? "In the mountain" Answered the master. The disciple insisted, "But what path did you take? What did you see?" The master answered, "I followed the smell of flowers, and I wandered with the young shoots." We must let ourselves be guided by the dharma of the Buddha and have confidence in the grass and the flowers that grow, without goal or ego, naturally and unconsciously. The master's answer flows from the spring of wisdom. True wisdom is created beyond knowledge and memory.

Keep your hands open, and all the sands of the desert can pass through them. Close them, and all you can feel is a bit of grit.

Life is a fight. You must remain concentrated and not reveal your defects. Through continuous training and self-control, gradually you discard them.
