Louis Ferreira, the fact that things are without an abiding self means they are not real (bear in mind that the Nirvana Sutra says the Self is the Buddha-nature which alone is real). The myriad things are an illusion.

I will bring you Dogen back, again.

"As the myriad things are without an abiding self, there is no delusion, no realization, no buddha, no sentient being, no birth and death."

Many Happy Returns!

I once read a rumour in a chat room online, that the author of this blog was born sometimes in july around 60 something years ago. Well the best birthday present I can think of and believe he might appreciate is this Charles W. Cushman Photograph Collection from Indiana University Archives. Probably holds the best colored photos on United States everyday life as it was durning the 40s to 60s. Thank you for the nice material you have provided us. Happy birthday! :)

amata is immortality, koot, not deathless

its a + mata (mortalis) . Im + mortalis. i.e. immortality
