A Master was asked by a curious monk "What is the Way?"


"It is right before your eyes" replied the Master.

"Why do I not see it for myself then?" asked the monk.

"Because you are thinking of yourself" answered the Master.

"What about you," said the monk, "do you see it?"

The master replied, "So long as you see double, 


saying I don't, you do, and so on, 


your eyes are clouded."

"When there is neither I nor you, can one see it?" asked the monk.



"When there is neither I nor you, 


who is the one who wants to see it?"

replied the Master.
