The great way of Buddha ancestors is only giving and receiving face to face, receiving and giving face to face; there is nothing excessive and there is nothing lacking. You should faithfully and joyously realize when your own face meets someone who has received this transmission face to face.
— Dogen, “Face-to-Face Transmission”
I hope to see your face when I travel to these places in the coming months. Through all space and time, nothing surpasses meeting face to face.
