"The following Dharma talks were given as classes to a small number of formal students in a casual manner and setting, and represent approaches to a truly intimate enquiry into our own natures. True questioning is often side-tracked by defensiveness, one-sidedness and struggle. The Mahayana schema of the Six Paramita or Perfections of practice describe how this basic questioning or complete seeing can refine itself until it can completely cut the root of the delusions of self-image. At that time, at this time, the ten directions and three times fall away and our original nature or Ordinary Mind is realized. And then our practice truly begins."

- Anzan Hoshin roshi, November, 1986.
