Q. In the Bible, John 1:14, it says that “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” What does this mean?

A. The ‘Word’ here means emptiness or oneness, and ‘Us’ means forms. The ‘Word’, the ‘Father’ and only ‘Son’ are different names of emptiness that refer to Buddha or the true Self. ‘The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us’ means that Emptiness became form, that is, One became many. ‘We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth’ means that all we have seen are forms from Emptiness, or Oneness.
