What is intuition?

All data which has settled into our deep mind is called the unconscious. Intuition is not influenced by our experience and memory. When zazen becomes riper, we purify our unconscious, thus our awareness become as if just born, pure in its functioning, like a mirror simply reflecting, letting things be as they are, this is called intuition. Meeting reality straight on, nothing separating. The flower is red, the willow is green. Even if the Buddha were to see it, the flower is red, the willow is green.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
