Consultation - Monday
During consultation we reexamine living and dying from heart to heart. The dialogue takes place in a formal setting. Don't hesitate to ask questions you normally don't dare asking. Only through your determined and thorough examination of body and mind, worth and harmony can be formed.
True person without rank and name.
In the record of a Master it says: "on your lump of red flesh is a true man without rank who is always going in and out of the face of every one of you. Those who have not yet proved him, look, look!"
Our basis is the selfrealization of this "true man without rank." This self-realization is the essence of all the Wise One's teaching, and has been passed from generation to generation in Zen, like "water poured from one container to the next." This is based on Zen's view that truth lies not in words recorded in written texts and scriptures, but in the Mind inherent in all beings.
A special transmission outside the scriptures, not relying on words and letters.
Directly pointing to the human mind. Seeing ones true nature and attaining enligthenment.

Please respect the formalities as they give the consultation a frame to be consciously performed and processed. Through formality the "me and you" vanishes and the exchange from heart to heart becomes the main issue.
The consultation is without charge.
