The function of Zen practice

Awakening to the truth that “the many things actualize awareness of the self” is the function of Zen practice; your true nature is the true nature of the universe. The Buddhist formula for salvation, liberation, enlightenment, or any of the other terms used to indicate the ultimate truth of religion consists of personally realizing that you are one with all things including both enlightenment and delusion.
