What can you say about the Yogi practices in relation to Zen?
March 11, 2013, 4:14 pmI do not know much about the practices of Yogis, yet in the olden days there existed also Yogis of Zen. The path of these Yogis was about using their physical body to realize the wisdom of the Buddha, that is why the experience of dying completely is so important in Zen. This means that all preconceived ideas die. They need to die right from the root where they come from. Then there is only that pure awareness of this present moment, which brings forth great joy. The Buddha saw the morning star and was touched by truth, Kyogen Osho heard the sound of the green bamboo, from this experience human´s wisdom becomes purified.
