    Do not look to what is called the Dharma by teachers, for what sort of Dharma could that be? Look at the void in front of your eyes. Q: Then should we avoid any feeling in relation to the Dharma? A: Where no feeling arises, who can say that you are right? Every single thing is just the One Mind. It is in this fashion that the Zen master lead his listener into truth, often by a single phrase designed to destroy his particular demon of ignorance.

    These have been collected here to present the teachings of the Master himself. Awake to it, and it is there. With the help of these paradoxes, beautifully and simply presented in this collection, Huang Po could set his disciples on the right path. It also offers deep and often startling insights into the rich treasures of Eastern thought. Living in this relative, dualistic existence, how can we expect to comprehend the absolute; commune in the womb of the ultimate void; return to the singularity? But the people of the world do not awaken to it, regarding only that which sees, hears, feels and knows as mind.

    These methods cannot be compared to the sudden elimination of conceptual thought, in the certain knowledge that there is nothing at all which has absolute existence, nothing on which to lay hold, nothing on which to rely, nothing in which to abide, nothing subjective or objective. Do not keep them nor abandon them nor dwell in them nor cleave to them. Huang Po, also known as Hsi Yun, is believed to have died as late as A. If they seek from within themselves, they will find nothing tangible; how much less can they find a Dharma worthy of their attention elsewhere!

Because such a one forms no concepts whatever. Transmission: When the people of the world hear it said that the Buddhas transmit the Doctrine of the Mind, they suppose that there is something to be attained or realized apart from Mind, and thereupon they use Mind to seek the Dharma [the Way], not knowing that Mind and the object of their search are one.

Look at the void in front of your eyes. It is neither long nor short, big nor small, for it transcends all limits, measures, names, traces and comparisons. Even though they do their utmost for a full aeon, they will not be able to attain to it.
