— Han-Shan Te-Ch’ing
In our practice, if we do not rely on the fundamental wisdom, prajna, it will be difficult to transcend life and death. But this wisdom is not to be sought outside. It is the original nature of Self-Mind, which is in itself perfect. It is said, “If one realizes the Mind, the great earth does not possess even a square inch of soil.” This is because our Mind is originally the bright wisdom that is in itself nothing.
