A Mantra- Don't Waste a Moment




I have this quotation by the 7th Century Chinese Chan Buddhist master Hongren posted on my desk:


"Work, work!...Work!  Don't waste a moment...Calm yourself, quiet yourself, master your senses.  Work, work!  Just dress in old clothes, eat simple food...feign ignorance, appear inarticulate.  This is most economical with energy, yet effective."
