Man follows the laws of the Earth
Earth follows the laws of Heaven
Heaven follows the laws of the Self
And Self follows the laws of His intrinsic nature !
All mysticism points out that the Inner Reality is hidden.
An Indian mystic by the name of Bodhidharma travelled to China and Dhyan ( Meditation ) became the Chinese Ch'an and the Japanese Zen ! Zen followers worship the metaphysical entity ( Bodhi Dharma ) which to them represents the Absolute Bodhi Essence. The Chinese share this doctrine of Absolute Bodhi Essence with the Indian Buddhist tradition !
