The Twentieth Gate

Reflection on there being no self is a gate of Dharma illumination;
for [with it] we do not taintedly attach to self.

No self (emptiness) :
a state of "pure consciousness" in which the mind has been emptied of all particular objects and images

May we, together with all beings
Reflect on emptiness
That we may be free from attachment to self

仁道 生開 - Jindo Shokai "Open to life in a benevolent way"
Just another itinerant monk; go somewhere else to listen to someone who really knows.
