  In Tokyo in the Meiji era there lived two prominent teachers of opposite characteristics. One, Unsho, an instructor in Shingon, kept Buddha's precepts scrupulously. He never drank intoxicants, nor did he eat after eleven o'clock in the morning.... continue...

INWARD VIEW AND OUTWARD VIEW
To cling to onself as Buddha, oneself as Ch'an or the way,
making that an understanding, is called clinging to the inward view.

Attainment by causes and conditions, practice and realization,
making this an understanding, is called clinging to the outward view.

Master Pao-chi said, "The inward view and the outward view are both mistaken.

Called no attention. Yep.

vertical line OBJECTIVITY AND SUBJECTIVITY
Things have never declared themselves empty, nor have they declared
themselves form; and they have not declared themselves right, wrong,
defiled or pure. Nor is there a mind that binds and fetters people.
It is just because people themselves give rise to vain and arbitrary
attachments that they create so many kinds of opinions, and give rise
to many various likes and fears.
Just understand that things do not originate of themselves. All of them
come into existence from your own single mental impulse of imagination
mistakenly clinging to appearances.
If you know that mind and objects fundamentally do not contact each other,
you will be set free on the spot. Everything in a state of quiescence right
where it is; this is the very site of enlightenment.

No mind and objects. Yep.

vertical line When Gensha Shibi, a Chinese Zen master, and a general were eating cakes together,
the general asked:
- What is it that's used everyday but not known?
The master handed a piece of cake to the general and said:
- Eat this piece of cake.
The general ate the piece of cake, then repeated the question.
The master said:
-That's what's used everyday but not known.

The generals physical being and not known because we are to busy asking questions with insecure attention like that whats used everyday but not known. The Buddha body aware of eating the cake.

Don't paste conflicting zen teachings. Not all have understanding.
