Buddha...how to become a Zen Master!









There is a simple way to become a Buddha
( according to Dogen)

For starters,
refrain from unwholesome actions
And,
do not be attached
to birth
or
death

Show compassion towards all sentient beings!

For instance,
be respectful to Seniors
And,
kind to Juniors

Do not exlude anything
or be tempted
 by
desire

Have no designing thoughts
or
worries
And, lastly
Do not seek anything!
