Nath Zen

Unrelenting attention cuts through mind-activity with a one-pointed focus on "this-here-now"; suddenly the bottom drops out of the shitpail.

Unrelenting attention is used to break through to simple awareness; absorbed into awareness, this "watcher" is spontaneously annihilated.

That's the basic Ch'an method and it's what Nisargadatta taught, too. Nath and Zen are one.

"Have you felt the all-embracing emptiness in which the universe swims like a cloud in the blue sky?" -Nisargadatta
