Pei Xiu of Hedong
The essence of the mind is empty, and the myriad conditions are all serene. It is like the great orb of the sun climbing into space—the refulgent brilliance gleams in illumination, purity without a single speck of dust. The realization of this mind is without new or old, without shallow or deep. Its explanation depends neither on doctrinal understanding, on teachers, nor on opening up the doors and windows of one's house to let in students. Right now, and that's it! To activate thoughts is to go against it! Afterward, you'll realize this is the fundamental Buddha.
