Ejo studied with Zen master Dogen. One day in the course of inquiries he heard the saying, "One hair goes through myriad holes," and all of a sudden realized enlightenment.
That evening he went to Dogen and said, "I do not ask about the one hair, what about the myriad holes?"
Dogen smiled and said, "Gone through."
