Seung Sahn Soen-sa On Sameness

70ceb-img_2325Seung Sahn Soen-sa (August 1, 1927–November 30, 2004)

Everything in the world comes from the same one thing. It is like in a cookie factory. Many different kinds of cookies are made – lions, tigers, elephants, houses, people. They all have different shapes and different names, but they are all made from the same dough and they all taste the same. So all the different things that you see – a cat, a person, a tree, the sun, this floor – all these things are really the same.

 

🎂Happy Birthday Seung Sahn Soen-sa (August 1, 1927–November 30, 2004) In Memoriam🌹
