Reflection 739


Welcome!


Dweller in the immeasurable

Hopefully a number of you, I'm sure quite a lot of you, are at this moment seeing what it's like right where you are––seeing that you are not in a box, seeing that you are not looking at me out of the dark interstices of some meatball, some little box full of plumbing, out of two slits in it. Seeing that you are as wide as this room.

Some time ago I came across, in the Pali Canon of all places, a Buddhist scripture that says that there are two kinds of men or two phases in one's life. The first kind of man is a dweller in a small hardness. The other kind of man is a dweller in the immeasurable. Well, are you in a small hardness or are you at large? This is for doing, this is for seeing. It is not for understanding.

From 'Enlightenment and Social Responsibility', a talk by Douglas Harding given to the London Buddhist Society in 1972.
