The Society: Religion and Spirituality: (Enlightenment Religion and Spirituality )


Words cannot describe the Tao and the Tao cannot be named. That which is eternal is unnameable. Naming is the basis of things. -- Lao Tsu, Taoist sage Enlightenment is the complete awareness of life without mental modifications. There's no thought, no self, no jiva, all of this goes away. But at the same time, it's within the world, within the form, the stillness and the substance are really the same thing. -- Frederick Lenz When we ask what Buddha nature is, it immediately vanishes. -- Shunryu Suzuki - Founder of the San Francisco Zen Center These descriptions point to something that is outside our daily experience. Sages have pointed to it for thousands of years. Enlightenment Religion and Spirituality Society.
