Excerpts from Different Sources

'A master said : " Before one studies Zen the mountains are mountains and the waters waters to him.If, however,he gets an insights into the truth of Zen though the instructions of a good master, then to him the mountains are no more mountains and the water no more waters; but later on when he has really reached the abode of peace(i.e. when he has attained satori), the mountains are again mountains to him and the waters waters!"'

(D.T.Suzuki: Essays in Zen Buddhism, Vol. 1, P.12 )
