He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."

My knowledge of zen i must admit is limited but when looking at it i think of this.

Is there the 4 noble truths and is there the noble eightfold path, as buddha said wherever there are these two things there will be arahants.

To my knowledge Zen has these two teachings so its all good to me :smile:

Hello all,
When I was practicing Zen, Bodhidharma's teachings, as well as The Gateless Gate, The Blue Cliff Record and Verses on the Faith Mind were among my favorites to read and contemplate. I found them to be so clear, and I still refer back to them when speaking of emptiness and mind.

Individual, can you please point me to information concerning Zen Master Seung Sahns sexual impropriety, proselytizing, and loose-ness of handing out of robes? As a former Korean Seon practitioner, I have a soft spot for the late great, so this information would be of use for me.
