“Great is Mind. Heaven’s height is immeasurable, but Mind goes beyond heaven; the earth’s depth is also unfathomable, but Mind reaches below the earth… Studying it [Zen], one discovers the key to all forms of Buddhism; practicing it, one’s life is brought to fulfillment in the attainment of enlightenment. Outwardly it favors discipline over doctrine; inwardly it brings the Highest Inner Wisdom. This is what the Zen sect stands for.”
