Gentle Jizos and Jizo Bodhisattva

An interesting quote regarding vows:

It took me many years to understand that vows are at the core of practice, actually are the 'nuclear' core of the energy pile that is our life. An interviewer once asked Maezumi Roshi if Buddhists believed in something like a soul that continued after death. Maezumi Roshi said, 'No. It is the vow that continues.'
