Time and again, philosophy finds that it can express itself best, not in cold and hard concepts, but in intricate metaphors. Plato used the story of the cave to illustrate Being and becoming. Indian philosophers often used stock metaphors to support their argument. In Chinese Buddhism too, key metaphors have helped to define and even to win important debates. In the evolution of early Ch'an, the metaphors of water and waves, mirror and lamp played significant roles.

The following article by Whalen Lai examines the meanings of these Ch'an metaphors and their related texts.

during your explorations? Again,
even if you think you are alone,
there is always someone else here.
Horizon beckons.  More >

Litanies of the Rose — by Remy de Gourmont

Rose with dark eyes,
mirror of your nothingness,

...And show a further Sea—
And that — a further — and the Three
But a presumption be —
Of Periods of Seas —
Unvisited of Shores —
Themselves the Verge of Seas to be —
