The Dzogchen Tibetan view is all is pure and in the divine enlightened state from the beginingless time and is at the same time empty. All forms sounds minds are already enlightened. Bodhidharma says that all is emptiness nothing holy. Or is this only to be discovered through zazen?

Once you have experienced enlightenment, that perception is true. How about your own essence though? Can you say that you are emptiness? As long as there is a self, it is not emptiness. If you understand, that is also not emptiness. Zazen done with awareness is not zazen. All needs to be completely forgotten, once your mind is pure, then the world is at peace.
