Zazen is the essence of mind as is...

< Back to Question and Answer

How should I envoke deeper zazen state in mind? And how should I keep the zazen state in every moment? Is it enough to concentrate my attention to breathing or should I pay attention to something else also?

Not through zazen alone will your mind deepen but because you want to sit zazen. Our mind is dualistic, that is why we can see hear smell taste touch and can work in accordance with the outer world, yet there is also the eye looking within. When your practice ripens, then you simply return to your original nature, realizing that from the origin there is no form, but your being is reaching through the whole universe, deeply connected with all.
