My master was not a chauvinist and taught women and men with equal vigor. Ergo he used he and she synonymously and therefore some passages in these writing are feminine as well as masculine. Understand that we are all potentially the Master and as such a masculine stereotype would be a limited teaching.
My master had a secret that he did not talk about. After years and many questions he finally revealed that he had chosen the practical side of Buddhist transcendentalism, but incorporated Taoism naturalism, (The Way,) and wedded pragmatic Christianity, because he was Samurai.
