202. Is your zazen haunted by some ghost from the past? ('Though the many beings are numberless, I vow to save them all'). Are you taunted by ghosts of the present? ('Though delusive passions and thoughts rise endlessly, I vow to turn them around'). Are you frustrated at not being able to stop the ghost like chatter in your head? ('Thought after thought arises in the heart-mind, thought after thought not separate from heart-mind'). Remain open to all that presents itself, acknowledge and accept it while you stay grounded here and now in breath awareness, body awareness. Remember that 'Nirvana is right here before your eyes: this very place is the Lotus Land; this very body the Buddha!'
