Chapter Seven: The Principle of the Nature


The Founding Master said, “The reason a person cultivating the Way endeavors to see the nature is to know the original realm of the nature and, by using one’s mind and body without fault like that realm, to achieve perfect buddhahood. If one only tries to see one’s nature but not to achieve buddhahood, this would be of little use, like an ax that is well crafted, but made of lead.”
