A Zen Garden can say as much about what the Buddha taught as the most erudite treatise on emptiness.

Stephen Batchelor

Un Jardín Zen puede decir tanto de lo que Buddha enseño como el mas erudito de los tratados en vacuidad.

Death, the most dreaded of evils, is therefore of no concern to us;

for while we exist death is not present, and when death is present we no longer exist.


La muerte, la mas temida, no nos tiene que preocupar ya que mientras existimos, la muerte no esta presente, y cuando la muerte esta presente, ya dejamos de existir.
