Mind is not Buddha. Knowledge is not the Way.

Mind is not Buddha. Knowledge is not the Way.

Nansen said, “Mind is not Buddha. Knowledge is not the Way.”

Student: “What is Buddha and what is the Way if mind is not Buddha and knowledge is not the Way?”
Master: “Nansen already said all.”

Commentary:
A glass is to water as a word is to contents. Don’t mistake a vessel for its contents.
