Hello Dharma friend

When I read to master bodhidharma teaching . He said about the important to see our true nature .
But how can i see my true nature ?

I think everything is explained in the same teaching. Just don't leave even one sentence without understanding.
Say what you think about me here.

This short text sums up well Bodhidharma's teachings, explaining in brief the principle (true nature) and the function (practice) of zen: THE ESSENCE OF MAHAYANA PRACTICE (with Annotation).
"There is no such thing as the real mind. Ridding yourself of delusion: that's the real mind."
(Sheng-yen: Getting the Buddha Mind, p 73)

"Neither cultivation nor seated meditation — this is the pure Chan of Tathagata."
(Mazu Daoyi, X1321p3b23; tr. Jinhua Jia)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."

(Nanyue Mingzan: Enjoying the Way, tr. Jeff Shore; T2076p461b24-26)
