What we're about

Scratch Your Own Itch

ZEN TEMPLES SWITZERLAND

ZEN makes mind its foundation and no-gate its gate. Now, how do you pass through this no-gate? It is said that things coming in through the gate can never be your own treasures. What is gained from external circumstances will perish in the end. However, such a saying is already raising waves when there is no wind. It is cutting unblemished skin. As for those who try to understand through other people`s words, they are striking the moon with a stick; scratching a shoe, whereas it is the foot that itches. What concern have they with the truth? A man of determination will unflinchingly push his way straight forward, regardless of all dangers. Then even the devil cannot hinder him. Even all the holy and wise ones from the east and west would beg for their lives. If one has no determination, then it will be like catching a glimpse of a horse galloping past a window; in the twinkling of an eye it will be gone.

The Great Zen Way is gateless, approached in a thousand ways. Once past this checkpoint you stride through the universe. Be watchful of your time. All is impermanent and passes swiftly away. Time waits for no one.

Urchig's Zen

ZEN TEMPEL IN DER SCHWEIZ

Zen macht den Geist zum Fundament und die torlose Schranke zum Eingang. Nun, wie gehst du durch diese torlose Schranke? Man sagt, dass was auch immer von aussen kommt, nie dein Eigen sein kann. Was von äusseren Umständen erworben wird, muss am Ende zugrunde gehen. Wie auch immer, diese Aussage selbst schlägt Wellen, wenn gar kein Wind weht. Zerschneidet die makellose Haut. Wenn du es durch die Worte eines anderen zu verstehen suchst, ist es wie wenn du mit einem Stock den Mond jagst, oder den Schuh kratzt, obwohl es der Fuss ist, der juckt! Was haben solche Leute mit der Wahrheit zu tun?! Wer entschlossen ist, treibt sich auf dem Weg unhaltbar vorwärts, trotz aller Gefahren. Und dann wird ihn auch der Teufel nicht daran hindern und die Heiligen und Weisen in Ost und West werden um ihr Leben fürchten. Wenn du nicht entschlossen bist, dann ist es wie wenn du einen Blick auf ein vorbei galoppierendes Pferd hinter einem Fenster erhaschst: in einem Augenblick ist es vorbei.

Das Leben & Sterben ist die grosse Sache, sei wachsam, denn alles ist vergänglich und vergeht schnell, die Zeit wartet auf niemanden. Tausend Wege führen zur torlosen Schranke; einmal hindurch und du bist frei von Leben und Sterben.
