I am Not, but the Universe is my Self --- Shih T'ou, A.D. 700-790

In other words,

I am not any thing, but the apparent universe is my self.


  1. This is great! So simple but so clear. Never heard of this fellow.

  2. Glad you like it!

    I got this quote from Wei Wu Wei's "Open Secret."

    "The Roaring Stream, A New Zen Reader" (edited by Foster and Shoemaker) has a six-page chapter on Shih T'ou.
