Dharma & Logos
In Zen, true awareness is not teachable in the usual sense. It can only be experienced beyond words and traditional teachings, because the core of Dharma can not be grasped in an intellectual way. The teacher needs to be an example and incentive for the student; he can show him techniques and ways to enlightenment, though in the end, the student has to attain it through his own effort.
In the beginning was the Logos, and the Living Word was with God, and the Word was God. If you understand there is no way to say it, then, you should understand how to say it, because in the beginning was the word. Zen is the way to eradicate confusion, not a way to teach. Zen Master Pohwa Sunim
