He was someone who, for every sound he heard, contemplated the mind of the hearer, thereby realising his true nature. Bassui Tokusho is a 14th century Zen master. Bassui realised there was nothing one could grasp to call the soul. With this new view of the emptiness of all things, Bassui no longer felt the burden of body and mind.
