Dogen Zenji said, “The clarification of life and death – this is Buddhism’s most important concern.”
‘Clarification’ differs from belief. It refers to seeing things clearly for what they are.
What form does life and death reveal to us when we see them clearly in enlightenment? What is their true form? The answer is that the content of life and death is totally empty; their true form is no form.
