"After I’m gone, some of you will seclude yourselves in the forests and mountains to meditate, while others may drink rice wine and enjoy the company of women. Both kinds of Zen are fine, but if some become professional clerics, babbling about 'Zen as the Way,' they are my enemies."
- Ikkyu, Head abbot of Daitoku-ji temple addressing the monks in the year of his death 1481

Avalokiteśvara Bodhisattva while practicing deeply the Prajñāpāramitā, perceived the five Skandhas are empty, and was freed from all suffering and affliction.
“Śāriputra, form does not differ from emptiness; emptiness does not differ from form. Form itself is emptiness, and emptiness is form. The same is true for sensation, conception, synthesis, and discrimination.
"Śāriputra, all dharmas are empty — they are neither created nor destroyed, neither defiled nor pure, neither increase nor diminish.
"Because, in emptiness there is no form, sensation, conception, synthesis, or discrimination;
No eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body, or thoughts;
No forms, sounds, scents, tastes, sensations, or dharmas.
There is no field of vision and there is no realm of thoughts.
There is no ignorance nor elimination of ignorance, even up to and including no old age and death, nor elimination of old age and death.
There is no suffering, its accumulation, its elimination, or a path.
"There is no understanding and no attaining.
"Because there is no attainment, bodhisattvas rely on Prajñāpāramitā, and their minds have no obstructions.
Without obstruction, they have no fears.
Because they are detached from backwards dream-thinking, their final result is Nirvāṇa.
Because all buddhas of the past, present, and future rely on Prajñāpāramitā, they attain Anuttarā Samyaksaṃbodhi.
"Therefore, know that Prajñāpāramitā is a great spiritual mantra, a great brilliant mantra, an unsurpassed mantra, and an unequalled mantra.
The Prajñāpāramitā Mantra is spoken because it can truly remove all afflictions.
The mantra is spoken thusly:
