Dogen seems a little too grim. Hakuin was definitely the guy to have a beer with.

The old-timers were monastics, and had taken the vow of "not indulging in the wine of delusion". You might have Tea with them, instead. So might I.

Hotei seems like he would have been a fun guy to share some tea with.

...and likely a deep dish pizza.

The results we read of Mr Dōgen putting brush to washi, are his efforts at putting forward the... Un-putforwardable?

A very serious matter indeed.

He is hardly at his most relaxed. You get him down the boozer... Couple of games of pool, I reckon he might surprise you all! :lol2:

A beer or two with Fr Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ French paleontologist who wrote a lot of modern stuff I like.
In the 1920's he dug around Chine for bones and tools and found pre Neanderthal men, in the Ordos desert west of the Great Wall. A great plateau in Inner Mongolia. Seeing this early people adpting to this great open vastness, and finding human remains and ancient tool wrote: "The immense hazard and immense blindness of the world are only illusions."

..and later in life,

"Throughout my whole life, during every minute of it,
the world has been gradually lighting up and blazing before my eyes until it has come to surround me,
entirely lit up from within."


...refreshed by Annie Dillard's FOR THE TIME BEING.
