"For several hundred years people in both China and Japan have misunderstood the Zen teaching, trying to attain enlightenment by doing zazen or trying to find 'the one who sees and hears,' all of which is a great mistake. Zazen is just another name for original mind, and means to sit with a tranquil mind. When you do sitting meditation, you're simply sitting, just as you are. ... Those who do speak about Buddhism, for the most part, are only blinding people's eyes." (Bankei)

Excellent insight!
