Back to Basics - Formal Practice @ Far Hills

In practicing, two things are very important: correct direction and try mind. Correct direction means wanting to find our true nature and save all beings from suffering. Try mind means doing whatever you are doing, no matter what. Just do it, just try. One day he said, “If you have try-mind and correct direction, then you have correct practicing. Then one day you realize, try mind and correct direction is Enlightenment.” So correct direction we can get from our Dharma teachers, it can be pointed out to us by our dharma teachers, by our Zen Master. But try mind, only we can provide. So it’s very important for everybody to try.
