- (Master) Good Morning?
- (Students) Good morning!

   After Jesus was crucified he was resurrected this morning. Our usual conversation asking “Good morning” and answering “Good morning,” has the same meaning. Daily life is utmost truth! If you cannot experience this now, start to try to find the hidden egg in the corner of your mind. If you believe, the material temple does not have God in it. The real temple was built three days ago.


   Like this morning, each time we start to talk, how can we express God’s mind without attaching to our own ideas? That challenge surely had John thinking deeply before using his hands to write down God’s message. His first word arises from long and sincere meditation, “In the beginning was the word.” Why do you think he wrote that? It is like the master Chao-Chou asking his disciples, “When the builder of this stone bridge started to build it, where did he try to put his hand first?” If you can answer this question, you have already experienced crucifixion and resurrection. This answer is the turning word from death to life, an udumbara flower blooming from the ash.


   A disciple brought to same master the following question, “What is the meaning of Boddhidharma’s (the first Zen patriarch who came from India to China) coming from the West?” Master Chao-Chou pointed with his finger to the cypress tree in the garden and said, “Cypress tree in the garden.” The disciple said, “Master do not teach people with idols outside of yourself!” The master said. “I am not teaching people with idols outside of myself.” The disciple asked again, “Then what is the meaning of Boddhidharma’s coming from the West?” The teacher pointed in the same way and said, “Cypress tree in the garden”.


   A man said to Jesus: “I will follow you, wherever you go!” This man was looking for a destination. What a sinful idea! Chasing a picture in his mind! Unlike him, Jesus himself is not aimed at anything. “Birds have nests, foxes have caves, but the Son of Man has not even a place to put his head on it!” On purpose Jesus freezes himself in the nothingness. Indeed he completely crucifies himself. But look what immediately happens! Amazingly the master turned himself to another man and said to him, “Follow me!” At that very moment, he perfectly resurrects himself with this living word. This is a perfect example of the way all sages awake people in the eternal truth.


   Now think about it from your own position, from your spiritual center, on your meditation cushion, from the Jesus within yourself. It is to you that the question has been asked and you are the one who answered. Get Easter from your within! No truth is coming from the outside. The physical temple is not a temple anymore. The physical Jesus is not Jesus anymore. The physical day is not Easter day anymore, but the rebirth of truth has already been fully celebrated in you! Save all beings from their sufferings! From your position, stretch your thousand hands to them! Use your thousand eyes and your thousand feet! Swear yourself; “I will refrain to attain Buddhahood if there is even one suffering lamb left.” This is why Jesus came in this human form -- to rescue the last lost sheep.


   Master Song-Wol often said to his students, “The Buddhadharma which is calmly fulfilled and powerfully omnipresent.” Even it speaks about the divine, what a dead expression! The master indeed crucifies himself with what is an act of adoration to an idol. But look! From the deepest of death, the master was fully resurrected when he added: “(The Buddhadharma,) which never moved at all, yet it melts the iron wheel.” The tide rises when there is no wind on the ocean. The lotus flower blooms in the empty eyes of a skull. Iron flowers bloom from a rotten log.


   How about you? What is your resurrection today? How can you understand Easter?


   Why did Master Son-Wol say, “Buddhadharma never moved at all, yet it melts the iron wheel”?


   If someone asked me I would answer, “The chicken hatches from a broken egg”.


Thank you.
