If a person wishes to enter the Buddha realm, he should purify his mind so it becomes as if vacuous and empty, and leave far behind the various phenomena and graspings. One should cause the mind, whatever direction it goes, to be without obstructions. Can you be like this in your everyday practice? If you are able to respond in this way, then the moon and water will face each other calmly, and the wind in the pines will be clear and never ending. Meditating in this way, one could experience the boundlessness of one's original mind, which is identical to the mind of all the Buddhas.
