Book 240, Gateway to Infinite Dharma Treasure

Book 240, Gateway to Infinite Dharma Treasure

~ This book does not contain long-winded theories. I will not use deep Buddhist terminology, nor will I lecture or preach. I just want to explain what I have achieved during my own practice, using the simplest language.
Remove branches and leaves.
Directly to the point.
Not talking much.
Only the essence. ~

~ The most important thing as a cultivator is being ''single-minded.'' First become aware of the Buddha-nature. Then we must keep in mind and constantly practice, also known as maintaining one's practice after awakening. This is ''single-minded,'' and being ''single-minded'' is very important. ~

~ The key point of my article is ''life is a drama.'' Only in this way, can one be in an ''unoccupied'' mood, be of ''no-thought'' attitude, and enter the ''single-minded'' Samadhi (meditation). ~

~ ''Perseverance'' is necessary in one's whole life. Myriad practices subsumed in the six perfections are inseparable from ''perseverance.''
I have many disciples who have ''awakened their minds,'' but still a lot of them show worldly attachments. It is very difficult to transcend the six paths of reincarnation. I advise all holy disciples to exercise ''perseverance,'' ''Instantaneous cessation'' and ''Instantaneously transcend'' all temptations. Only then can one's Buddha-nature appear naturally. ~

~ Someone asked me, ''How do you witness the Buddha-nature?''
I replied, ''Naturally.''
''Why is it natural? Doesn't one discover Buddha-nature through perseverance?''
''No! As long as one removes deluded thoughts, the Buddha-nature is right there.''
I emphasize:
The Buddha-nature always exists.
The Buddha-nature is immaculate and bright.
The Buddha-nature does not depend on cultivation.
One does not cultivate Buddha-nature. The Buddha-nature will appear naturally as long as one cultivates with perseverance and achieves no mind.
