    Tenzo Kyōkun 7 – Putting the Mind of the Way to Work

    Tenzo Kyōkun 7 – Putting the Mind of the Way to Work

    This talk continues Shohaku Okumura Roshi’s commentary on Dogen Zenji’s Tenzo Kyokun – Instructions for the Zen Cook. (Covering the third paragraph on page 37).
    In the previous paragraph of Tenzo Kyōkun, Dōgen said we should see things not with our common eyes, but we should see things with the dharma eye or Buddha’s eye; and here he’s saying: anyway, we do have a competitive mind. How can we use this competitive mind for our practice? First he said: “If you’re resolute in your intention and are most sincere, you will vow to be more pure-hearted than the ancients and surpass even the elders in attentiveness.”
    So he said that instead of competing with the contemporaries, the people around you, you should compete with the ancient masters, or elders. This is kind of a tricky thing, an interesting thing. Dōgen said when we really, sincerely want to work as a tenzo, in order to develop or improve our ability to make better dishes, somehow we need to compete; compete with ourselves and compete with others. How can we use this competitive mind to become better?

    Tenzo Kyokun 6 - Seeing Things With a Buddha Eye

    Tenzo Kyokun 6 - Seeing Things With a Buddha Eye

    This talk continues Shohaku Okumura Roshi’s commentary on Dogen Zenji’s Tenzo Kyokun – Instructions for the Zen Cook. (Covering the second paragraph on page 37).

    Beginning with the passage studied in this podcast, Dōgen describes the most important point in the attitude of the tenzo. The meaning of Dōgen’s admonition is very clear: don’t complain. The tenzo receives food ingredients from storage, and whatever the tenzo receives, they don’t complain, they just accept things as they are and work together with those things to make them into the best food or dish possible.

    But if we carefully read the expressions and sentences, what Dōgen is saying is not so simple. Of course, the meaning is to avoid “like and dislike.” But the reason for that attitude is very deep and important within the essence of Buddhist teaching. In the English translation alone, we cannot see that connection.

    Tenzo Kyokun 5 - Receiving our life

    Tenzo Kyokun 5 - Receiving our life

    This talk continues Shohaku Okumura Roshi’s commentary on Dogen Zenji’s Tenzo Kyokun – Instructions for the Zen Cook. (p. 36).
    Okumura Roshi speaks about the tenzo’s attitude toward his work in the kitchen: the importance of not judging the quality of the ingredients that are provided. Just prepare them carefully, paying attention to the three important things in cooking: quality, quantity, and timing.
    The tenzo’s life is at the intersection between discrimination and non-discriminating. He receives the food with no judgment and then makes determinations about the best way to use it. This is mind (as subject) and things (as object) working together as zenki – total function.

    The bankruptcy of self-power

    The bankruptcy of self-power

    This talk continues Shohaku Okumura Roshi’s commentary on the modern classic Opening The Hand of Thought written by his teacher Kosho Uchiyama Roshi. (Section 4, p.66).
    Okumura Roshi continues the theme of his previous talk, offering a description and examples of “self-power” and “other power” in both Pure Land Buddhism and Zen.
    There is no separation between self-power and other power; other power includes self-power. Yet the individual determination or personal ability of self-power cannot reach the deeper power; we need to awaken to the larger context, the interconnectedness of self and other beings, in which we are living as an individual.

    “I” effort: self-power and other-power

    “I” effort: self-power and other-power

    This talk continues Shohaku Okumura Roshi’s commentary on the modern classic Opening The Hand of Thought written by his teacher Kosho Uchiyama Roshi. (Section 4, p.66) Okumura Roshi describes two categories of Buddhism: ji riki (self-power) and ta riki (other-power). Traditionally, Zen is considered to be “self-power” and Pure Land Buddhism to be “other-power,” but Uchiyama Roshi says that our practice of zazen is before separation between self-power and other-power.
