To study the Buddha way
Is to study oneself.
To study oneself
Is to forget oneself.
To forget oneself is to be
Enlightened by the myriad dharmas.
To be enlightened
By the myriad dharmas
Is to bring about the dropping away
Of body and mind and
Of both oneself and others.
The traces of enlightenment
Come to an end
And this traceless enlightenment
Is continued endlessly.

Dogen (1200-1253)
