1. Cardinal Dharma Master Chŏngsan said, “There are three steps to resolving the great matter of birth and death. First is to awaken to and realize that realm in which birth and death are originally nonexistent and non-dual. Second is to model oneself wholeheartedly on and to preserve that realm in which birth and death are originally nonexistent and non-dual. Third is to present and actively put to use that realm in which birth and death are originally nonexistent and non-dual. One must fully possess true ability in these three steps before one can be said to have fully resolved the great matter of birth and death.”
