Wednesday, August 2, 2017 – “Upaya” – by Sokuzan

To practice upaya or skillful means, look at the perception of self and the perception of other. Look for the beating hearts and emphasize what is basically good. You have to first stretch your awareness and see the separation to see that fundamentally nothing is separate. When you are functioning out of wisdom, you can’t actually do skillful means, you are skillful means.
