Zennist:

Thank you. There really are no degrees of truth, are there.

yeti:

I take them to be both the same (satori is the more Japanese; kensho is the more Chinese). They stand for: dṛṣṭi-svabhāva (envisage own-nature).

Zennist:

How would you distinguish between kensho and satori? In the texts I have read on the subject, kensho would be considered a quickening or flash of insight into mind, whereas satori would be the full monty. Do you make any such distinctions?
