Ol’ Dogen

Ol’ Dogen wrote that the Way is perfect and all-pervading, yet even if one attains the Way and clarifies the mind, raising an aspiration to scale the very sky, one may still be somewhat deficient in the vital Way of emancipation.

How can a student, a master, and a householder, be deficient in the Way?

A student is deficient in the Way through studying the Way.
A master is deficient in the Way through attaining the Way.
A householder is deficient in the Way through embodying the Way.

Therefore a student, a master, and a householder, are never deficient in the Way.
