I carried this volume, excellently printed on soft paper, back to my cell and began to examine it. Presently it occurred to me that, though the content was very deep, the wording was such that a man with some knowledge of Zen would not find it too difficult to translate. It contained some very striking paradoxes, one of which caught my eye as soon as I opened the book for the first time.
A fool seeks for the Buddha, not for Mind.
