Today 26 years ago Yamada Mumon Roshi passed away. Below are some words of his that guide us still nowadays.
Many people think that they are not in a situation
that allows them to awaken to their true nature,
or that people in lay life are unable to experience enlightenment,
but this way of thinking is simply not true.
There is a Japanese expression, ”a mouse attacks a cat”.
That refers to the fact that anything is possible
if one is desperate enough.
With sufficient motivation,
anyone can attain enlightenment.
