Basui was an early Zen master in Japan, who
was known to be a proponent of
zazen practice to
the exclusion of most other techniques of Zen. He
also stressed teaching Zen to all who were
interested, laymen or monks.

Basui was known to  write in vernacular Japanese
kana phonetic syllabary, not in the Kanji (Chinese
characters) that was the more common formal
practice in the Zen world.

    Just before his death Basui turned to the
    crowd that had gathered around and said
    in a loud voice:

    Look straight ahead.
    What is there?
    If you see it as it is
    you will never err.


    He is talking about inside. These are his
    last words; he is saying, “Look straight
    forward!” He is not telling anybody, he is
    simply saying it to himself, Look straight
    ahead. What is there? – just a pure
    clarity, a silent sky, an eternal silence. If
    you see it as it is, without any
    preconceived ideas, without any religions
    and philosophies – just as it is – you will
    never err. You will never make a mistake.
    You will reach directly like an arrow, and
    hit the moon.

    Zen’s concern is absolutely you – you in
    your original nature...
