Life and Death

Dogen said that true Zen practice illuminates the border between life and death.

With every choice we make there is karma, and only with careful intention can we be ever-present in the world of life and death. My sensei once said that "ukemi is purposeful action."

The budo is to know when to die.

For a practitioner of Zen, perhaps the question is: "what is it that dies?"
