SIT-A-LONG with Taigu: Koku 4

The Nishijima Cross translation goes as follows:

Daibutsu would like to tell Shakkyō the following: "Before, when you grabbed Seidō's nostrils, if you wanted to grasp space, you should have grabbed the nostrils of yourself, Shakkyō, and you should have understood how to grasp the fingertips with the fingertips." Even so, Shakkyō does know a bit about the dignified behavior of grasping space. Even a good player at grasping space needs to research the interior and exterior of space, needs to research the deadening and vitalization of space, and needs to know the lightness and weight of space. We should maintain and rely upon [the teaching] that the effort in pursuit of the truth, the establishment of the mind, the practice and experience, and the assertions and questions of buddhas and of patriarchs are just the grasping of space. 
My late master, Tendō Nyojō, the eternal buddha, says: "The whole body like a mouth, hanging in space."Clearly, the whole body of space is suspended in space.

Grasping space is extra. This reality in this reality, this space in this space practice, teach and preach the Dharma. Like the empty mouth of a bell, space moves in space.
