I am reading "Taking the Path of Zen" by Aitken Roshi, who is an amazing writer. Of course, you have to pick out some of the more Sanbo Kyodan points of the book and the more Rinzai bits are easier to see after reading the post by Jundo on the flavors of Zen. He makes mention of makyo, or illusory hallucination during zazen, and though he talks about it as a delusion that needs to be let go, and even as something that isn't even neccesary to have at all, he also says that it's a sure sign that you are on the right path in your practice. Is this something that is also important in our tradition? Jundo, have you experienced this, or do you believe that this is something particular to Aitken Roshi's lineage?
