Gurus Gurus Everywhere

Nowadays many have lost the old way, and many try to usurp the style of Zen, setting up their own sects, keeping to clichés, and concocting standardized formulas and slogans. Since they themselves are not out of the rut, when they try to help other people, it is like a rat going into a hollow horn that grows narrower and narrower until the rat is trapped in a total impasse.
- Yuanwu (1063-1135)

Hmm. Sounds like the 11th and 12th centuries were very much like our 20th and 21st.

The more things change, the more things stay the same. But I must admit to liking his rat imagery.
