Welcome!


Letting The Mind Go


All the complexes and problems of the mind arise from its overcrowding and congestion. The cure isn't to reform it but just let it go where it wants to go. We are now letting it go where it belongs. A tremendous relief! It is not perfecting the mind, because the mind is imperfect in every way. Still one experiences sadness and confusion and anxiety, pain, as well as positive feelings. But they are seen as characterising the world and not as personal hang-ups. This relocation helps a lot, but is no recipe for continuous happiness or any kind of perfection where happiness and perfection don't belong. Only at Centre are you All Right! (1977 interview with Douglas Harding, by Richard Lang)

Only when you find no things in your mind and find Mind in no things, are you empty and spiritual, formless and marvellous. (To-shan Hsuan-chiou)

To know our Mind is to obtain liberation. To obtain liberation is to attain the Samadhi of Prajna, which is ‘being without thoughts’. ‘Being without thoughts’ is seeing and knowing all things with a mind free from attachment… But to refrain from thinking of anything, so that all thoughts are suppressed, is to be Dharma-ridden, and this is an erroneous view. (Hui-neng)
