“Sometimes I take away both the person and the world.” ~ Rinzai

Description: In Case 86, Rinzai, an important figure in the history of Zen, asks his teacher Ôbaku, “What is the great meaning of the Buddha-Dharma?” Ôbaku answers his question very directly. Inherent to this path of practice is the potential to fundamentally change our life. In the early years of his training, the great master Rinzai was having a very hard time and it is a gift to be reminded that he is just like us.
