The sutra
Once, when he was still with his master, Kyozan said to Isan, "Where does the real Buddha dwell?"
Isan replied, "By means of the subtlety of thoughtless thought, contemplate the boundless spiritual brightness. Contemplate it until returning to the ground of being, the always abiding nature, and its form of the undichotomous principle. This is the real Buddha."
On hearing this, Kyozan was enlightened.
Later, when Kyozan had become a master himself, Isan sent him a mirror as a gift. When he went to the hall where his monks were assembled, Kyozan held up the mirror and said to the assembly, "Please say whether this is Isan's mirror or Kyozan's mirror. If someone can give a correct reply, I will not smash it."
No one answered, and Kyozan smashed the mirror.

Question 1 from Maneesha
Our Beloved Master, is our original face that of the witness? Is it that we live as amnesiacs, forgetting that we have only arbitrarily adopted a body and mind, and that enlightenment is simply regaining our memory?
P.S. Why do you call me "poor" Maneesha?
