Bowl With No Handle

Bowl With No Handle

"You are Buddha" - how can this be grasped?

On this point (and lack thereof), another nugget from Dahui's Shobogenzo.

The master in the koan below, Dalong Zhihong, is a 12th generation successor of the great Deshan Xuanjian.

[598] Master Dalong was asked by a monk, “What is Buddha?”

He said, “You are.”

The monk said, “How to understand?”

Dalong said, “Do you still object to your bowl having no handle?”
