‘Buddha’ is a temporary name for what cannot be seen when you look,
what cannot be heard when you listen, whose place of origin and passing away
cannot be found when you search. It covers form and sound, pervades sky and earth, penetrates above and below.
There is no second view, no second person,no second thought.

– Zen Master Xiatang
