vertical line Don't know much about it or the man behind it.
It was said that the man or being needed to prepare his house for the return of the master
That getting things in order would help bring the return of the master of the house.
Of course, the house being your body and mind.
The master I guess would be your true nature.
Sorry, probably all wrong ... better to look it up on the internet ... haha

vertical line Hmm, I just looked it up and I was way off.
Apparently his fourth way is different from fakirs, monks and yogis.
His expounded his idea of the work one must do on oneself to become more self aware.
He claimed that the teachings he brought to the West from his own experiences and early travels expressed the truth found in ancient religions and wisdom teachings relating to self-awareness in people's daily lives and humanity's place in the universe.

Really not Zen ... So what was the point??
