Our bodies are the great universal life

Buddhism now

No, Sawaki wasn’t my friend. I was a pauper and he was a tycoon. So he took pity on me.

These are the words of Katô Kôzan in an interview in his 95th year. Kôzan and Sawaki Kôdô were old friends and Dharma brothers. Their practices turned out quite different though, and they never tired of ribbing each other about the differences. The mutual respect they had for each other was actually enhanced by those differences.
