In Zen

" In Zen, the greatest kindness is to help others to practice and discover their own profound and unfailing strength." 

"Zen masters push students to see how deep the desire for practice is, to see whether the student will climb back up on the cushion despite the rough treatment. Is the student seeking candy from the teacher or is she seeking the real thing?"

Brenda Shoshanna, Religions of Kindness (2010)
