Tao Te Ching Chapter 28-11 Constancy attainment
Then, the attainment of constancy is sufficient. (Ch.28)
It is sufficient.
You don't have to do anything superhuman.
You accept all.
You love all.
Then, you are perfect; perfectly and constantly one with Tao.
This is constancy attainment 常得 [jo toku].
No one can do better than this.
It is your goal.
You are already there.
You are a runner standing at your goal and waiting to start.

-Jizo knows it. We don't really have to squat in an exotic fashion. We can lay ourselves like a Buddha in the tropics. We don't have to be serious to be a Buddhist. Kanzan and Juttoku are laughing at you. Jizo Bosatsu are the ones who are standing at the crossroads of Buddhism and Shintoism. They will never ask you for any sacrifice, but they are always with you like a good friend. If you really want to show some respect to them, just offer them a piece of onigiri, the rice ball. A left-over hamburger will do, too.
