— Chinul 1209
All dharmas are like a dream: this is what all the saints have taught. Consequently, deluded thoughts are originally calm, and the sense-spheres are originally void. This void and calm is luminous, aware, and never dark. This void and calm mind is precisely the pure mind which was transmitted by our predecessor, Bodhidharma. Whether deluded or awakened, the mind is fundamentally self-aware.
