This chapter presents a transcript of Suzuki Roshi's tenth talk on the Sandokai. It focuses on these lines from the poem: Each of the myriad things has its merit, expressed according to function and place. Phenomena exist, like box and lid joining; principle accords, like arrow points meeting. Roshi begins by talking about how we observe things, how we should treat things, and how we understand the value of things.
