The thief left it behind: the moon at my window - Ryokan

... the essence of all teachers and gurus (ones who cast light on darkness)
is the same - and is best experienced outside the framework of thought and ideas …

When Gandhi was asked if he was a Hindu…
he responded, saying something like,
'yes, I am a Hindu.
I am a Buddhist,
I am a Christian
I am a Jew... etc'

It seems that mystics through the ages do not argue detail
their teachings do not seem to belong to a school
but people have created the schools of thought in their aftermath

Letting go of all preceptions
makes Be-ing possible

... Surrender ...

Be-ing is ever changing
