Hold Nothing 【無一物 Muichi Motsu】 (Sai. Vol 4 - Continuous)

☆ Words referring to the state of being freed of all worldly desires. The “Essentially holding nothing” of Buddhism means that because by nature we are all “empty” there is nothing we should be fixated on, and all people are free of everything.

"If you meet Buddha, kill him. If you meet your father, kill your father. Free of everything, bound by nothing. You live your life simply as it is" - Sanzo (Saiyuki Chapter 19)

☆ This one Zen teaching Kouryuu, who hadn’t embraced the Buddhist way until succeeding to Sanzo Priest, heard from Koumyou Sanzo.
