To practice tantra requires even greater compassion and greater intelligence than are required on the sutra path; thus, though many persons in the degenerate era are interested in tantra, tantra is not for degenerate persons. Tantra is limited to persons whose compassion is so great that they cannot bear to spend unnecessary time in attaining Buddhahood , as they want to be a supreme source of help and happiness for others quickly.
So it is not a matter of whether it is possible to attain Buddhahood, or if it is possible to make a tile a jewel. But just to work, just to live in this world with this understanding is the most important point, and that is our practice. That is true zazen.shunryu suzuki
If, after obtaining Buddhahood , anyone in my land gets tossed in jail on a vagrancy rap, may I not attain highest perfect enlightenment.gary snyder
