« Don’t try to figure out who you are, » said the Zen master Tozan Ryokai. « If you try to figure out who you are, what you understand will be far away from you. You will have just an image of yourself. »
And Eka, the student who would become the successor of the Zen master Bodhidharma, said it another way: « Because I know myself very well, it is difficult to say who I am. »
Who is it then? Or what? And where?
