Shinchi Kakushin

                Emperor Go-Uta asked Shinchi Kakushin about Zen. Kakushin told him: “A Buddha is one who understands mind. The ordinary fellow does not understand mind. You cannot achieve this by depending upon others. To attain Buddhahood you must look into your own mind.”

[Shinchi Kakushin – Zen Masters of Japan: 83-85]
