Bodhidharma

There are four famous lines of text that are attributed to Bodhidharma, which I have
termed the “Zen Slogan.” Here is that slogan:
 A special transmission outside of the teachings
 Not established on words and letters
 It directly points to the human mind
 And seeing one’s Nature one becomes a Buddha
Act as a Zen commentator and unpack the meaning in each of these lines. Provide
examples, such as stories and/or related doctrine and practices that are relevant to the
point being made in each line. How do you see earlier Buddhist and/or Daoist ideas
giving rise to, influencing, or differing from the points made in Bodhidharma’s “slogan”?
