Dogen

‘To hear with the ear is an everyday matter, but to hear with the eye is not always so. When you see buddha, you see self-buddha, other-buddha, a large buddha, a small buddha. Do not be frightened by a large buddha. Do not be put off by a small buddha. Just see large and small buddhas as valley sounds and mountain colors, as a broad long tongue, and as eight-four thousand verses. This is liberation, this is outstanding seeing.’ (Shobogenzo Keisei Sanshiki – Valley Sounds, Mountain Colours)
