“… The principle of zen is: body and mind fall away …”
Description: Ongoing series on basic Buddhism. Having reached the fourth aspect of mindfulness, which is the seventh fold of the Noble Eightfold Path, which is itself the fourth of the Four Noble Truths, we find that dharma gates are indeed countless. Buddha gave this, his first teaching upon having attained enlightenment, to those who required a gradualist guide to awakening. In zen, beneath the surface of myriad teachings, bare reality reveals itself to be uncompromisingly one.
