No Almighty God

"No Almighty God" number 71 of 200 from Robert Aitken's book Miniatures of a Zen Master.

The shift of Buddhism from the rich Indian views of a spiritual dimension to the down-to-earth Chinese attitude is fundamental, and modern students of Zen in the Western hemisphere must thus unlearn the notion that realization relates solely to something unworldly.
-Robert Aitken

Any error or confusion created by my commentary on Miniatures of a Zen Master
is solely a reflection of my own delusion and ignorance.
Any merit generated by this activity is solely the result of
Aitken Roshi's clear teaching and is dedicated to
all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas throughout space and time.
