Oneness and multiplicity live together. . . .
This is one of the essential points of dharma practice.
How can we perceive and express the oneness of everything within the myriad things we encounter?

— Dogen’s Freeing Verse, translated by Shohaku Okumura

I still recall how, with my bag on a pole, I forgot my yesterdays.
Wandered the hills, played in the water, went to the land of the clouds.
The lift of an eyebrow, the blink of an eye -- all of it samadhi (deep absorption).

In this great world there is nowhere that is not a wisdom hall.
— Ziyong (18th c. Chinese Buddhist Nun)
