Faith and Zen

By Rev. Kongo Langlois, Roshi at Zen Buddhist Temple of Chicago:

The real point is that once you make a decision concerning yourselves, your lives as Zen Buddhists - then as Zen practitioners, do it. DO IT! Go straight ahead. Look neither to the right nor to the left, but like a bore, continue, continue, continue. Then you will know what zazen is. Then this faith will become a mountain underneath you. Don't look for things. Don't shortsight your goal or be myopic about your philosophy. Just practice. Just practice! This is Zen.
