Dropping body and mind
Dear Nishijima Roshi,
This is a video of you answering a question about the meaning of the expression "dropping body and mind" (shin-jin-datsu-raku in Japanese) that Master Dogen used to describe what happens when we practice Zazen. This expression comes up sometimes in discussions about Zen Buddhism, but it can be a bit difficult to understand. In the video you also answer questions about the difference between someone who is enlightened and someone who isn't. I think your answers are very helpful, so I hope you won't mind me putting this on your blog for people to watch.
