To study the Buddha Way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be actualized by all things.

~ Eihei Dōgen Zenji

Buddha

Zen practice is to get to our True Mind, the mind not accessible to thinking. This mind cannot be consciously known by ordinary efforts. An unusual effort is necessary. This effort is zazen.

~ Shunryu Suzuki Roshi
