Regarding Our Faith

Concerning studying, what Bodhisattvas throughout the Three Different Times have studied together is This particular mind.

Concerning recollection, what all Buddhas throughout the Three Different Times have recollected Is This particular mind.

Concerning disclosure, what every single Sutra from Tripitaka has thus far disclosed is This particular mind.

Concerning confusion, what each and every ordinary being has confused is nothing but This particular mind.

Concerning realization, what all practitioners of Tao realize is This particular mind.

Concerning transmission, what all Patriarchs have transmitted one to another is This particular mind.

Concerning meditation, what all the humble students throughout the world have sought through introspective meditation is nothing but This particular mind.

If anyone masters This particular mind, every day matters will be set right and everything will be completely clear. If This particular mind is confused, everything, everywhere will be topsy-turvy and each and every thought will be insane. This particular essence abides in every ordinary being. This is our original nature of Buddhahood; It is the original spring from which everything in the world flows.
