Ma Tzu: The Empty Mirror

From The Sannyas Wiki

He walked like a cow and looked like a tiger. He could touch his nose with his tongue and had two rings on the soles of his feet! The unpredictable Ma Tzu brings fresh responses and devices to every situation - the empty mirror who simply reflects. To see things as they really are, you have to be absolutely empty - a mirror, clean, without any prejudices, without any judgments. And that is Ma Tzu's whole teaching: Don't react - just be, and reflect.
