If one goes to chapter 8 of the Shurangama Sutra Master Hua comments on the 'souls' in the Form skandha. This may have something to do with the multiplicity of little lives in that form skandha.
"Souls" in the Form skandha? "Multiplicity of little lives" in the form skandha?

I just read the message that remm posted and it says nothing even vaguely related to the Master Hua commentary.


My second sentence (or paragraph) was separate because the subject had nothing to do with remm's post. But it does, via Master's teaching referred to, address all the chatter about multiplicity etc.
