Wow — a modern translation of the complete 1,144-page The Shōbōgenzō: The Treasure House of the Eye of the True Teaching, in a clean, easy-to-read PDF format, free for downloading (8.5 MB) from Urban Dharma.
… a phrase like ‘Your very mind is Buddha Itself ’ is as the moon within water, and … the import of ‘Sitting in meditation is itself becoming Buddha’ is as a reflection in a mirror. Do not get tangled up or taken in by a clever use of words. In order that you may now push on in your training to realize enlightenment in an instant, I show you the marvelous path which the Buddhas and Ancestors have directly Transmitted, and I do this that you may become a genuine follower of the Way (p. 9).
I may never need to buy another Zen book.
