Hi JMJM, What is meant by the high-lighted sentence below? Is it a
teaching of the Buddha? --ED         Hi Ed,

That's a description most valuable to the author.

What we teach is, through Sitting Chan, as we gradually surpass the
three karmic hindrances -- body, mind and spirit -- then we can witness
or experience ourselves.

Perhaps you have heard the statement about Chan,  "It simply could not
