Chapter Seven: The Principle of the Nature


The Founding Master said, “If one claims that the mind’s form cannot be seen because it has no shape or substance, and that the nature cannot be described because it is ineffable, then one is not a person who has truly seen the nature. Thus, only if the mind’s shape and the nature’s substance are perfectly clear before one’s very eyes, so that one can see them without shifting one’s gaze and clearly speak of it any time-only then can one be called a person who has clearly seen the buddha-nature.”
