The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Eight: Buddhahood


The Founding Master said, “Sentient beings use their minds while being attached to joy and anger, sorrow or happiness, thus bringing much harm to themselves and others. Bodhisattvas use their minds while transcending joy, anger, sorrow, and happiness, thus they do not bring harm to themselves or others. The buddhas use joy, anger, sorrow, and happiness as if they were their servants, thus bringing much benefit to themselves and others.”
