What do you mean by the true Buddha,
The true Dharma and the true Way?
Would you be good enough to explain to us?”

The Master said,
Buddha-this is the cleanness
And purity of the mind.
The Dharma-this is the shining
Brightness of the mind.
The Way–this is the light
That is never obstructed anywhere.
The three are in fact one.
All are empty names and
Have no true reality.

Lin-chi (d.867)
