He is his own authority, his own argument; his own presence is the whole evidence. But in English there is only one word, teacher, which is used for all kinds of people. The other word is master, which is not used very much by the English speaking people themselves. But I would like to use the word master, equivalent to the word acharya: One who knows, not only through mind, but through experience. Most of the sutras in this part are unpolluted. The disciple has simply noted them down as Bodhidharma must have spoken them.
Even if God is standing before him, he cannot concentrate on him. He is just pure emptiness. He does not carry any tensions, because concentration is a tension, focusing is a tension. He is utterly relaxed. Here Bodhidharma comes to his height when he says: A BUDDHA ISN'T A BUDDHA. Now this will be very difficult for people to understand -- particularly those whose minds are prejudiced by so many religions in the world. A BUDDHA ISN'T A BUDDHA. It has to be understood, because it is so significant that if you miss it, you will miss everything.
But buddha is not a personal name; Gautam Buddha is only one of the buddhas amongst millions. And Zorba has every potential to become a buddha. I cannot prevent it and neither can you. And you are only a Buddhist, just a follower, an imitator. You don't even know exactly the meaning of the word `buddha'. You have never experienced what self-awareness is. " He has been silent, he has not answered. And I don't think he has shown the letter to anybody else. So whenever Bodhidharma uses the word buddha, remember he is not mentioning Gautam Buddha.
