Not knowing how close the truth is, we seek it far away – what a pity!

All sentient beings are essentially Buddhas.
As with water and ice, there is no ice without water;
apart from sentient beings, there are no Buddhas.
Not knowing how close the truth is,
we seek it far away
– what a pity!

– Hakuin Ekaku Zenji
