Sample text

It's only because we are dull ordinary beings that we have forgotten all about it. If we don't realize this natural state, there is no way to stop wandering about in the six realms of sam- a• It i• sara. No one else is going to prevent you from rambling on, and it certainly won't stop by itself. What is of true value? We need to think about this for ourselves. When we do business and make a profit, we rejoice. If we have a loss, we fall into despair. Let's compare our business capital to our buddha nature, which is like a wish-fulfilling jewel.

Even though we happen to be human, if in this life we don't .... a• i1: I• attain realization by recognizing our own nature, we will continue again in some other state within samsara. The Buddha taught that if we were to collect the blood that has spilled from each death we have experienced, there would be more blood than the ocean could hold; not from the deaths of all sentient beings, but merely from one sentient being. That is how many lives we have had before. If we continue to spin around in the realms of samsara, will this process somehow stop by itself?

Then what is left? Bringing something to mind is like thinking of the shape of a buddha. St, imagine the face, next, the arms. When the arms appear, the face is gone. Now we imagine the legs, and the arms are gone, then we have to start all over again. It is quite difficult. Without imagining anything, that is the supreme meditation. As far as I am concerned, development stage is kind of hard. Completion stage is incredibly easy! People try to make me do physical exercise daily. And maybe it is good, but it is not so easy.
