Two Kinds of Religion by Zen Master Dae Bong OCTOBER 29, 2018

Two Kinds of Religion


Zen Master Seung Sahn said there are two kinds of religion: “I want something” religion and “Give to” religion.
“I want something” religion means people want something – health, prosperity, peace, happiness, enlightenment, salvation, to go to heaven. Many kinds of wanting.
“Give to” religion means don’t think about “my” situation. How can I help you? In “Give to” religion, you must put down your opinion, your condition, and your situation. Then you can realize your true nature. Then just give to others whatever they need. Just do it!
This is Zen practice. If you have that mind, then before you enter the meditation room, you are already practicing correctly.
