Amidazen – oud

Wandering between Zen & the Pure Land:

Amida Buddha“Since there is no Buddha or Dharma outside of the One Mind inherent in all people, in accordance with the student’s capacity and the occasion, and when speaking of the nature of ordinary people, if the teacher is lecturing on Amida he will say there is no Dharma outside of Amida. If he is lecturing on the Wonderful Law, he will say there is no Dharma outside the Wonderful Law. If he is lecturing on Kannon, he will say that everything and everyone is Kannon. If he is lecturing on the mind, he will say there is no Dharma outside of mind. You should realize that all lectures are given with this intention. Don’t you see?”

Bassui Tokusho (1327-1387)
