five levels of zen
禪則有淺有深。階級殊等。謂帶異計欣上厭下而修者。是外道禪。正信因果亦以欣厭而修者。是凡夫禪。悟我空偏真之理而修者。是小乘禪。悟我法二空所顯真理而修者。是大乘禪(上四類。皆有四色四空之異也)。若頓悟自心本來清淨。元無煩惱。無漏智性本自具足。此心即佛。畢竟無異。依此而修者。是最上乘禪。亦名如來清淨禪。

Zen has shallow and deep levels. They're different ranks. Those who strive for heaven and dislike worldlythings; that is the path of outsiders. Those who believe in causality but have likes and dislikes; that isordinary people's Zen. Those who see their self as empty; that is the small vehicle Zen. Those whorealise that self and phenomena are both empty; that is the great vehicle Zen. ... If one stops andrealises his mind as originally clear and pure, without vexation, the original self not lacking in wisdom bynature. that his mind is buddha without difference, relying only on this; that is the most superior vehicleZen, also called Tathagata Zen.

:「若頓悟自心本來清淨。元無煩惱。無漏智性本自具足。此心即佛。畢竟無異。依此而修者。是最上乘禪。亦名如來清淨禪。亦名一行三昧。亦名真如三昧。此是一切三昧根本。」
(CBETA, T48, no. 2015, p. 399, b16-20)If one suddenly realizaes that the essence of one's own mind is originally pure, solitary and withoutdefilements, itself originally endowed with the nature of undefiled wisdom, that this very mind isbuddha, absolutely no difference, and thus cultivates based on that, this is the supreme unsurpassedChan, also named the pure Chan of the Tathagatas, also named the Single Act Samadhi, also named theSuchness Samadhi. This is the fundament of all samadhis. ----
