Ma Tzu: The Empty Mirror

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.

Excerpt from: Ma Tzu: The Empty Mirror, Chapter 2
After bowing to the master, ma tzu asked him, bhow must one be attuned to the formless samadhi?b

"The master must have said to him that unless you become attuned with existence in utter silence, you cannot know the dharma, the very principle of life and existence. Ma Tzubs inquiry is that of an honest seeker. He loved what was said, he felt it as if it was exquisite nectar – but he would not believe it. There are still things to be settled. His question is not the question of a student, it is the question of a would-be master.

bHow must one be attuned to formless samadhi?b

"He cuts out all unnecessary questions and comes exactly to the right thing, how one should be attuned to the formless samadhi.

"Samadhi is a Sanskrit word, very beautiful in its meaning. It comes from a root which means, when there is no question and no answer, when your silence is so profound that you donbt even have the question; answers are left far away but you donbt have even the question. Such innocence which is just silent is called samadhi. And in this samadhi you can fall in tune with the heartbeat of the universe. Only in samadhi can you become one with the whole. There is no other way.

"Every day what we are doing in the name of meditation is moving towards samadhi. Meditation is the beginning and samadhi is the end. Ma Tzubs question is that of a potential buddha. He is not asking about non-essentials, just the very essential.

"The master said, bwhen you cultivate the way of interior wisdom, it is like sowing seed. When i expound to you the essentials of dharma, it is like the showers from heaven. As you are receptive to the teaching, you are destined to see the tao.b

"Tao is Chinese for what we call samadhi; the Japanese call it satori, the Chinese call it tao. Tao is perhaps the best of all these expressions, because it is not part of language. It simply indicates something inexpressible, something that you can know but cannot say, something that you can live but cannot explain. It is something that you can dance, you can sing, but you cannot utter a single word about it. You can be it; you can be the expression of Tao, but you cannot say what it is that you are expressing.

"Ma tzu again asked: bsince the tao is beyond color and form, how can it be seen?b"You have to understand this dialogue very deeply, because it will give you the right direction for what has to be asked. There are thousands of things to ask, but the essentials are very few and unless you start by asking the essentials, you will not come close to the truth.

"As Nangaku mentioned the Tao, Ma Tzu immediately asked: bsince the tao is beyond color and form, how can it be seen? – you are saying that if you enter into samadhi, you will see the Tao.b

"The master said: bthe dharma-eye of your interior spirit is capable of perceiving the tao. So it is with the formless samadhi.b

"It was for this reason that the East had to develop the concept of the third eye. These two eyes can see only the form, the color, but they cannot see the formless and the colorless. For the formless and colorless they are blind. In samadhi you close these eyes and a new perceptivity, which can be metaphorically called bthe third eyeb, arises in you; a new sensitivity which can feel and see what is not possible for your outer senses."
