Sesshin: Lunch Lecture
Sokoji, San Francisco


Zazen doesn't follow [1-3 words unclear].

Our mind should-- should not be stagnated or in agitation. Our mind should be calm. And to be calm does not mean to be stagnant.

So put your head [1-2 word] more straight and up-- upright. In this case, don't pull [?] your chin.

Then your state of mind will change.
