Hazy Autumn Moon

True Dharma Eye,
Case 198

Dogen Zenji

The Main Case

Zen Master Shenshan was crossing a river with his dharma brother Dongshan. Dongshan said, “Don’t make a mistake with your steps and slip into the current.” Shenshan said, “If I make a mistake with my steps, then I won’t live to cross the river.” Dongshan said, “What is the state without mistakes?” Shenshan said, “Now I’m crossing the river with the Elder.”
