23. The Master said, “You must become the empty sky! Because the sky is empty, it subsumes all things. To become great persons, our minds have to become like the empty sky. Regulate yourselves but do so with an empty mind; regulate your families with an empty mind; regulate your nation with an empty mind. In treating all your friends and all your countrymen, harmonize with them also with an empty mind. Hence, if in all things you are free from all signs regarding anything, as well as from remoteness or closeness, and if you have extinguished both hatred and love, then you are buddhas and bodhisattvas.”
