Suzuki Roshi

‘Here, it– he says– translator’s translation– ”mysterious.” Mysterious does not mean, you know, something [laughing]– something mysterious. Mysterious means, you know, it is mysterious– beyond word, it means, you know. You can– you know it, you know– you can understand it, but you cannot say– you cannot put it in word because word is just– it is not possible to say various understanding– various understanding from all angles. If you say, you know, from one– one side, you cannot say, at the same time, from the other side. So that is why we say “mysterious.” So even enlightened master cannot say anything properly.’ (from the Suzuki Roshi archive)
