    Zen Buddhism Expert B. Red Pine's commentary, augmented with numerous quotes from other commentaries of both Indian and Chinese exegetes, is figuratively and literally enlightening. The translator was trying to be helpful, but in attempting to render something intellectually graspable he erased the deeper meaning. Subhuti, a bodhisattva should thus be charitable, not dwelling in appearances. For a dyed-in-the-wool yoga student like myself, reading this book—and more importantly, meditating on its teaching—alternately confused and excited me, made me exquisitely uncomfortable by challenging a number of my cherished self-beliefs, and inspired new perspectives and new directions in my practice.

    In that incarnation, I was without the view of a self, without the view of a person, without the view of beings, and without the view of a soul. This is why is it is said 'not receiving blessed virtue'. Subhuti, it should be known that this person will completely accomplish the supreme, best, most extraordinary Dharma. In ancient times when the Tathagata practiced under the guidance of the Buddha Dipankara, he did not attain anything.

    This bodhisattva would overcome the former bodhisattva's attainment of merit. One cannot by way of the thirty-two signs attain sight of the Tathagata. If, Subhuti, a bodhisattva holds on to the idea that a self, a person, a living being, or a life span exists, that person is not a true bodhisattva. Detail from the Dunhuang block print There is a wood block printed copy in the British Library which, although not the earliest example of block printing, is the earliest example which bears an actual date.
