Boundless Mind

Boundless Mind

A student asked Zen Master Dae Kwan a question:

Student: If we are not so calculating with others, does that mean our mind will become wider?

Sifu: Your mind is originally empty.


The size of the cup reflects the amount of water it can hold.  If our mind has no size, it is boundless.  How can a boundless mind become wider or narrower?

Where does wide and narrow come from?  If you find that, the whole universe becomes yours.  How wonderful!
