Genjo Koan (Suzuki Roshi is commenting in this talk on the relationship of form and emptiness): A Dharma talk given by Shunryu Suzuki on August 20, 1967, at Tassajara. -- People may think Zen is a wonderful teaching.
'If you study Zen, you will acquire complete freedom. If you wear a black robe like this, whatever you do is alright.' This kind of understanding looks like observing the teaching that form is emptiness, but what I mean by 'form is emptiness' is quite different.
Back and forth we practice, we train our mind and our emotions and our body. And after that process, you will acquire the perfect freedom. And perfect freedom will only be acquired under some limitation. When you are in one position, realization of the truth will be there, will happen to you.
At Ignite Yoga, we believe that yoga is for everyone–For people of all ages and all walks of life.
