mind is the Buddha
A swing and a miss - strike one. No balls - one strike.
Laymen are Buddhas
Foul tip off the end of the bat - strike two. No balls - two strikes.
Unless they see their nature
Ump calls strike three - he's outta there!
As a practicing Theravadin this line of thinking is very inspirational to me and my practice.
Metta - (no one loves you more than i do bodom!)
Oh so ya wanna play hard ball do ya?
Well I guess I will have to return the book and never read Bodhidharma again. Thanks alot Anicca!
I knew I would probably take some slack for that but hey what the heck.

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19
