in this podcast i read from and discuss a great book called 'middle beyond extremes' in the tibetan buddhist tradition
in this podcast we discuss some old school eastern philosophy from Yuanwu aka Engo (1063-1155) - compiler of the Blue Cliff Record
Tao Te Ching - Lao Tzu - chapter 23
To talk little is natural.
High winds do not last all morning.
Heavy rain does not last all day.
Why is this? Heaven and earth!
If heaven and earth cannot make things eternal,
How is it possible for man?
He who follows the Tao
is at one with the Tao.
He is virtuous
He who loses the way
When you are at one with the Tao,
The Tao welcomes you.
When you are one with Virtue,
The Virtue is always there.
When you are at one with loss,
The loss is experienced willingly.
He who does not trust enough
Will not be trusted.
(translation by Gia-fu Feng and Jane English)
