    What wisdom can the Buddha offer to a Pagan on the experience of Kenshō, satori, or prajna. The Buddhist temple near me is closed and the local (to my city) pagans have little to offer.

    Seeking to see nature as it really is or seeking perfection are definitions of enlightenment.

    Kensho is overcoming Makyo--overcoming delusion via insight arising from the unconscious mind into the conscious mind--which is also Prajna. Carl Jung's Transcendent function is an interesting parallel.

    It often hits you as one of those *doh* moments.
