Thefundamental sūtra for the Chinese Huayen school and Japanese Kegon School ofBuddhism. 2 Suzuki-rōshi discusses ri and ji extensively in the Sandōkai lectures: "Whenyou practice zazen more, you can accept things as your own, whatever it is, youknow. That is actually the teaching of, you know, famous teaching of Kegon—jiji-muge. Jiji-muge means 'being has no,' you know, 'no barrier, no disturbance.' It—it, you know—interrelated closely. And it is difficult to say, 'This is bird, and thisis me,' because it is interrelated very closely. So it is difficult to separate bluejayfrom me. That is jiji-muge."
