wondrous being – zen

shin ku myo u pin::



Everyone comes out from nothingness moment after moment.

Moment after moment we have true joy of life.

So we say shin ku myo u,

“from true emptiness,

the wondrous being appears.”

Shin is “true”; ku is “emptiness”; myo is “wondrous”;

u is “being” :

from true emptiness, wondrous being.

Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind p.109




my comments:

When I leave all phenomena

if even just for a moment

I am then cleansed of all residue of the past.

Will I remain in that place of ‘no phenomena’?

Apart from phenomena there is no place.

“I” is really the name for the Universal Being.

As beings in the realm of limited consciousness

we mistake “I” for the single form that we perceive

as long as we are focused on single forms.

The answer is,


I am always in that place of the cessation

of all phenomena when I am still.”

Be still every so often

so that you can be empty and fresh

for all phenomena.

Then life is wondrous.

Try it, don’t doubt.

Then you will know what I mean.
