The Ineffable: According to Dogen translators Gudo Nishijima and Chodo Cross, “Inmo” is a colloquial Chinese word that is used to indicate something when there is no need to explain what it is – like the pronouns “it,” “that,” or “what.” They say Chinese philosophers would sometimes use the term “inmo” to indicate the ineffable, or that which is beyond words.
