The PathJust before the Zen Master, Ninakawa, passed away another Zen Master, Ikkyu, visited him.
"Shall I lead you on?" Ikkyu asked.
"I came here alone and I go alone. What help could you be to me?"
"If you think you really came and you are really going, if you think that you come and go, that is your delusion. Let me show you the path on which there is no coming and no going."
With his words Ikkyu had revealed the path so clearly that Ninakawa smiled, and without saying a single word, nodded and passed away.
