Chapter 5: Can a Circle Be More Circular?

Nangaku answered, “It is like the eye of the law,
possessed by the ground of mind,
seeing clearly the way, the samadhi of no-form.”

The answer seems to be absolutely absurd, makes no sense what he is saying.

He is saying: “There are thousands of samadhis, graves of people who have seen it and declared it as formless. I am not the only one. Its formlessness does not prevent its being seen; you just need a different vision, a different eye”. In Yoga they have called it “the third eye,” which can see the infinite.

“It is like the eye of the law.”

The word law is a wrong translation of dharma. There is always a difficulty in changing great things from one language to another language. The Sanskrit dharma, the Pali dhamma can mean religion and can also mean the law, because religion is nothing but the law of existence, the very order of this universe.

Nangaku answered, “It is like the eye of the law,
possessed by the ground of mind.-

Underneath your mind there are roots of your being, which possess your ultimate vision, the third eye.

-.seeing clearly the way, the samadhi of no-form.”

This whole existence has no limitations; the boundary is nowhere. Now physicists are in difficulty. These small questions and these small anecdotes have become tremendously significant for modern physicists. It is because the question is, if the universe is without any limits; then you accept something which you have not seen. Nobody has seen the boundary where the universe ends: it is pure hypothesis. Up to now science has been trying to believe that somewhere far away, millions and trillions of light-years away, there must be a boundary: “everything has a boundary, we may not be able to see it, but it has to be there.” It is only an assumption. With Albert Einstein’s researches the assumption has fallen down.
