照顧脚下 shouko kyakka

This zen word is used at many zendo.  Direct translation means “look at your feet.” Before entering zendo, take your shoes off and line up shoes at the entry neatly.    This is the way how we get ready for meditation at the zendo. How about your zabuton and zafu? Are they neatly placed?
