Kosho Uchiyama

‘Practicing zazen is the true gate to playing in this samadhi of the self that is only the self. The other side of this statement is that only practicing the zazen of the absolute self and absolute present is jijuyu zanmai. Yet if you assume the zazen posture and think that satori or buddha is outside of yourself, it will not be able to enter jijuyu zanmai.’ (Commentary on the Bendowa)
