六祖說:「 善知識!智慧觀照,內外明徹,識自本心。若識本心,即本解脫;若得解脫,即是般若三昧;般若三昧,即是無念。何名無念﹖知見一切法,心不染著,是為無念。」

Virtuous and knowledgeable friends, contemplate with prajna, brighten within and out. Recognize self nature, then liberated. This liberation is prajna samadhi. Prajna samandi is no-thought. What is no-thought? Grasping all dharma, mind not defiled, is no-thought.

Those who listen to the dharma, use your own wisdom to observe your heart. At this time your heart and the environment are all very clear. If you understand your own heart, you are enlightened. In other words, it is no-though. It is you see everything in this world, but your heart is not attached to them or polluted. You have to observe your own thoughts whether they are right or not right. If you have great wisdom, such observation would be very clear. Then you would be enlightened.

If your heart is not defiled by stress, then you won`t be tied down by them. An enlightened person would not be bound by whatever stress. He would be naturally free no matter what. Everything would be perfect, as I do not put the thought of 2012 on my mind. And the H1N1, even if you have it, it is good. No fear. How can you be totally attachment and stress free? This is what you must contemplate to attain. This is what the Sixth Patriarch grasped to be enlightened.

Every person in this world is useful. When a good person joining the True Buddha School, we welcome him. When a person with bad habitual seeds enter the True Buddha School, we welcome him too. Likewise, every being has Buddha nature. But we know they just haven`t changed their habitual behaviors. We hope now that they are here, they are able to transform the habitual seeds.
