Rinzai extreme

Followers of the Way once and for all sit down and cut off the heads of both the Sambhogakaya Buddha and of the Nirmanakaya Buddha. Those satisfied with merely completing the ten stages of the Bodhisattva are like serfs. Those content with universal and profound awakening are but carrying chains. Awakening and nirvana are like tethering posts for donkeys. Why? Because, followers of the Way, you fail to see the emptiness of the three great world ages; this is the obstacle that blocks you.

— Rinzai
