Phap Hien was a Vietnamese Zen master. He lived in the late 5th century and early the 6th century. When he was a young monk at the Phap Van Temple he met Vinitaruci (?-594) who was one of the successors of Seng-tsan, the Third Patriarch...
Originally he is empty, vast, and clear.
Some time later, he suddenly takes some Being such as Brahma, God, Allah or Atman,Soul or the One, the Many, the All, etc...and stands that One in his way leading to whatever direction he goes, and gets himself busy with that One all the time in trying to identify himself with that One, maybe until he dies.
This is very strange, isn't it?
