Menzan Zuiho

‘The famous phrase, “Do not depend on words” means that arguments about the quality of the recipe are not helpful for freeing oneself from starvation. For this reason Bodhidharma came to China without bringing any sutras, settled peacefully in this samadhi, facing the wall for nine years, and enabling people to open their eyes to Buddha’s wisdom. Once we appreciate the real taste of this samadhi, starvation from the immeasurable past will be appeased and you will not hunger again.’ (Jijuyu-Zanmai)
