C onsider the nature of earth: its coarsest aspect is the earth itself; its subtlest aspect is a mote of dust, which at its smallest would be a particle of dust bordering on emptiness.

Book 6, translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society. 





W hen our mind is under delusion, the Saddharma Pundarika Sutra ‘turns us round’. With an enlightened mind we ‘turn round’ the Sutra instead. To recite the Sutra for a considerable time without knowing its principal object indicates that you are a stranger to its meaning. The correct way to recite the Sutra is without holding any arbitrary belief. Otherwise, it is wrong. He who is above ‘Affirmative’ and ‘Negative’ rides permanently in the White Bullock Cart (the Vehicle of Buddha).




Buddhism Quote n°7973 | 
The Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra,ch.7, translated by A. F. Price and Wong Mou-Lam.
