Dogen's admonition was to drop off body and mind. The body is seen as a mere skinbag. The mind, an illusion. With zazen, one realizes through just sitting in panoramic awareness of emptiness, this luminous mind, on the path to bodhi citta.

I am of the Zen sect. My special mission is to train students of Buddhism by the Zen method. Nowadays, there are many types of Zen teachers. One type, for example, teaches Zen through philosophical discourse; another through so-called meditation; and still another directly from soul to soul. My way of teaching is the direct transmission of Zen from soul to soul.
