It is not a matter of achieving Bodhi or attaining Buddhahood. Rather, you yourself become aware that your own mind has always been fully enlightened.

May Aitken Roshi quickly return to lead all beings to enlightenment. He was a very great teacher and will be sorely missed.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

I was saddened to read of Roshi's death - in my early days of Buddhism as a Zen Practitioner, I eagerly read as many of his teachings and books and articles that I could lay my hands on!
He will be missed.

The essence of a real practice is to bring our intellectual understanding to the level of our heart - so as to feel it - to live it!
