In the tantric tradition, the experience of life is regarded as an endless ocean, a limitless sky or it is regarded as just one dot, one situation. And both are united in the expression: Eka-Rasa – One Essence!
“The purpose of studying Buddhism is not to study Buddhism but to study ourselves. You are not your body. You are the Great Activity. You are just expressing the smallest aspect of the Great Activity. That is all. But when you become attached to a temporal expression of the Great Activity, it is time to talk about Buddhism.” ~ Dogen Zenji
