Cultivation and the Ordinary

Postby thornbush » Mon Apr 20, 2009 9:23 am

The 13th Patriarch of Chinese Pure Land Tradition, Venerable Master Yin Guang (1861-1941, AD), made this observation:
http://www.ymba.org/BWF/bwf11.htm#mahayana
Cultivation is no different from
wearing cotton garments in the summer
and heavy padded clothing in winter,
we cannot go against the times,
capacities and conditions of sentient beings.

Is that true? How is this observation made manifest in your life?

Comments? Opinions? :thanks:
