Words of Buddha

As expressions of Buddha, dharmas are scriptures (sutras); words of Buddha. To see the true nature of a mountain or ocean is to accurately understand an expression of Buddha, to understand an expression of Buddha is to see Buddha (kenbutsu). Accordingly, to see Buddha (kenbutsu) is to hear and understand dharmas as ‘this sutra.’
