Zazen is the essence of mind as is...

Some masters say: Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, do not practice for yourself. for whom they do not practice?


Everyone is doing their training for themselves. We cannot eat some food to fill some one elses stomach. We cannot rest our body, so that someone else would feel revived. Yet there is a difference between people who are huge in their mind and those who are narrow in their mind. People who are small minded can only see themselves, so when training becomes difficult, they give up, so they never reach that state of mind which is open, huge and is full of wide wisdom. Those who have realized that huge state of mind of wisdom are called Bodhisattvas. Also called people of the Great Path. Bodhisattvas are huge in mind and can be believed in and trusted by others.
