Book of Bodhisattva Precepts

Postby Nicholas Weeks » Fri Aug 05, 2011 5:21 pm

Rulu's latest translation, which is from the Bodhisattva-bhumi of Maitreya:

http://www.sutrasmantras.info/sutra31.html
A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25

Free of hope and fear, relax.
Human life spent in
a state of great spaciousness is enjoyable.

Very interesting. Thanks for the notification Will.
Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.
