Dualities

If we’re really going to say that realities are a delusion, that emptiness is no different from form and self is no different than other, then what about institutional duality?

Is the duality between monk and layman a delusion? 

Or Bodhisattva and ordinary being?

Or saint and sinner?

 

Maybe zen institutions are kidding themselves with ideas like “ranks”
