On April 1, 2021, Jeff retired from Hanazono University. As such, Jeff will accept dana-donations to fund Zen activities (including travel for retreats, upkeep for the hermitage in Kyoto, etc). Dana-donations for Jeff can be given directly to him at: paypal.me/beingwithoutself
(For paypal, please use the “Friends and Family” option to avoid incurring a fee). People in Europe can also make a direct transfer to Jeff’s European bank account; please email us for bank details if required.
Do not seek outwardly, but get hold of “it,” which gushes out of your own mind. If you foolishly look after others’ treasures saying that it is so written in this holy book, or it is thus explained by that wise man, you can never pass through this gate of no-gate.
