the person who has actualized that perfect freedom which is the potentiality for all human beings. He exists freely in the fullness of his whole being.
The flow of his consciousness is not fixed on repetitive patterns of our usual self centered consciousness, rather arises spontaneously and naturally from the actual circumstances of the present.
Thus quality of life are extra ordinary: buoyancy, rigor, straight-forwardness, simplicity, humility, serenity, joyousness, uncanny perspicacy, and unfathomable compassion; his whole being testifies to what it means to live in the reality of the present.
- Richard Baker, Kyoto, 1970
