"There is a way. No one will reveal the secret. 
You must enter the door yourself. 
But there is no door. In the end, there is not even a way.
The great achievements of the world are but snowflakes melting on fire,
Accomplishments that move oceans are but dew disappearing in the glare of the sun,
Why live a dream in this ethereal life of dreams,
I forsake all to walk towards the great eternal truth.
- Dongshan (Tozan)

Although not a Chinese like Dongshan, this master of the Tibetan tradition, Khampar Kagyud Togden Achö. (1980) radiated what the quote expresses.
