Chan (Zen)

The non-conceptual nature of Chan (Zen) is apparent in the catch phrases that became popular in Sung China. Chan (Zen) trainees took their cues from such expressions as:
  1. No dependence on words.
  2. A personal transmission outside the standard teachings.
  3. Direct pointing to the mind.
  4. Seeing the mind is becoming the Buddha.
