Tao Te Ching Chapter 70-5 Precious one
The fewer people know me, the more precious I am. (Ch.70)
Why can't you see your face?
Because you don't have a face.
But you can see it on the mirror!
No, it is not your true face.
It is just an image in the mirror.
Do you know who you are?
You are the most precious one, or "the only respectable being" as the baby Buddha said. (☞See No boasting 22-11 and Ordinary? 67-3)
True You are the light that projects the holographic world.
As the actors in a film aren't interested in what kind of a projector they use at the movie theatre, people in your hologram don't care who is lighting them up.
Others don't know you are the Buddha of Infinite Light.

Tao answers your question!
☞Buddha of Infinite Light is also called Amida or Amitābha. "Na mu Amida Butsu". Just call his name, and he will be always there for you. In fact, he is always there for all of us. He is the amazing power source of Tariki. This Other-power lights up all. A life is a process to learn Jiriki / Self-power is the same as Tariki. It is not surprising at all that Zen specialist Daisetz Suzuki was not only a Zen specialist. He was interested in Tariki of Shin Buddhism.
