Hui-neng leads us to water, but we must drink it.

Our study of the platform sutra only leads us to our own minds, nowhere else, no other Buddha.

Each of us must practice ourselves. No one else can do it for us. Nor can any text take our place

It isn’t that the teaching is direct or not, sudden or gradual.

The teaching is simply so. When we finally understand it, it appears direct because it is right in front of us. When we don’t understand it, it appears indirect because it takes forever to comprehend.

Thank you all for taking this journey with me.

Spread the love
