Turning word: in Dogen‘s Japanese, 轉 語 [tengo], ‘Statement that crushes delusion and leads to liberation’ (Tanahashi 2010, 1152). Who is this turning the dharma wheel? Who is this turning the page?

Entering is the basis. The basis is from beginning to end.

— Dogen, ‘Bukkyo’ (Tanahashi 2010, 286)

God himself culminates in the present moment, and will never be more divine in the lapse of all the ages.

Thoreau, Walden, chp. 2
