NOW & ZEN WEEKLY UPDATE
MON 18 February- SUN 24 FEbruary 2019
“The bodhisattva is like a [person] who decides they'll fill the well by bringing the snow down to the plains, but the only thing they have to carry the snow in is a teaspoon. So they go up the mountain, get one teaspoon full of snow, come back down to the plains and put the snow in the well. Then they go back up the mountain, get another teaspoon full of snow, bring it down and put it in the well, over and over.”
— Bernie Glassman on the Bodhisattva Vow as told by Zen Master Wu Kwang
