SARVA MANGALAM

Thank you very much for this pointer!
今以佛眼觀之佛與眾生同住解脫之床。無此無彼無二平等。
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

Our life is very simple, very direct, very beautiful, very vast and very terrifying, but it is not at all convenient.

Here is a little sample from volume one of the Treasure Trove books:

On Virtue

Lao Tze said:
Those of superior virtue are not attached
to their virtue.
Those of inferior virtue are attached
to their virtue.
Those who are attached cannot be said
to have Way-virtue.


Those of “superior virtue”, cultivate the Bodhisattva Way but are not attached to the traces of practice. Although they do all kinds of good deeds, they don’t have any trace of doing them.

It’s said,
Doing good and cultivating virtue is just
doing what one should be doing.


You should absolutely not have arrogance or self-satisfaction in your minds. You shouldn’t think, “I am virtuous and good. I do good deeds.”

It’s said:
Doing good and wanting people to know
is not true good.
Doing evil and fearing that people will find out
is truly great evil.


Those who really cultivate the Bodhisattva Way are not attached to the things they do. They don’t become attached to any thing.
Only consider helping others and forget yourself. Master Hsuan Hua
