Shodo Harada

‘This true self is not some supernatural state of mind. From the origin, there is only one mu. When we see this clearly and directly, we are able to share it with all beings, so that they can have this same realization. But we don’t do that by bragging about having realized something special. When we realize this mu, we see that we are all alike. When we throw that small self away, how could we look down on someone else? All prejudice originates in ideas that have no relevance in this true place of holding on to nothing.’ (Not One Single Thing)
