Master Boban’s ‘If you know that forms are not forms, you will not see the Buddha’

The Diamond Sutra says, “If you know that forms are not forms, you will see the Buddha.” Regarding this, Master Boban commented, “If you know that forms are not forms, you will not see the Buddha.”

Student: “Why did Master Boban contradict the Buddha’s words?”

Master: “Because you still know that forms are forms.”

Commentary:

The best food can be poison to those who cannot digest it well.
