The Ch'an practice has, therefeore, been compared to a leap into a bottmless abyss,
with a letting go of all familiar ideas and prejudices.
The precipice is the unfathomable depths of our own conciousness, which yawns beyond the narrow
circle of our egocentric world of illusions. In order to aquire the courage to leap into
the depths, we require a certain inner preparation,
and a spiritual stimulus strong enuogh to enable us totake the risk.
From "Creative Meditation and Multidimensional Consciousness" by Lama Anagarika Govinda [Unwin Paperbacks]
