Look, people: if you are about to misunderstand your whole life, how can you not go to someone to find certainty?

When I first went on my journey, I read verses by my teacher and immediately believed this man spoke like the ancient sages and must have genuine realization. So I studied with him for ten years. One of those verses said,

To learn the way, first you must find out
The ultimate point;
Hearing sound and seeing form
Are inconceivable.
If you discuss high and low
Based on words,
It’s just like before you were enlightened.

Foyan (1067-1120)
