You said that there is no self but we cannot realize this if we don't practice Zen 24 a day. What does it mean to practice Zen 24 a day? From your response I concluded that Zen is the practice of selflessness of noself. Am I correct about this?

Are you able to think for 24 hours of the day? A baby has no knowledge about the world, that is why it can stay in present awareness without thinking. Do you think when you are asleep? Then you were not able to sleep. So why do you continue to think about this and that? That is what is confusing you. You simply need to stop this habit - and from there the change will come about.

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