Could you comment on words of Hakuin: Realizing the form of no form as form.

It was not Hakuin Zenji wo realized the emptiness of things first, but it is the logical expression of the Buddha´s satori experience. The first time it was actually called emptiness was by Ryuju Bosatsu, Seshin Bosatsu in the 15th generation. It is pointing to the essence of truth which cannot be taught. That is why Buddhism is often called the philosophy of emptiness.
