The Well Sees the Donkey - by Robert Althouse

This series is inspired by case 52 from the Shoyoroko, which reads as follows:

Attention!
Sozan asked Toku Joza, “Buddha’s true dharmakaya is like the vast sky. It’s conforming to things and manifesting shapes is like the moon in the water. How can this principle of conforming be expressed?”
Toku said, “It’s like the donkey seeing the well.”
Sozan remarked, “Well said, but that’s only 80% of it.”
Toku rejoined, “How about you, Osho?”
Sozan replied, “The well sees the donkey.”
