25. The Master commented on the practice of no-thought: “The practice of no-thought means to eliminate thoughts of attachment during one’s daily activities. This practice involves seeing, hearing, speaking, acting, and resting without generating any attachment to those activities, so that idle thought will always be extinguished and true thusness attained. Therefore, when the Founding Master spoke about the true locus of practice, he ultimately regarded no-thought as the supreme dharma-gate. The Buddha, too, when he explained the main purport of the Way and its Power regarded no-thought as the standard.”
