Many roads lead to the Path, but basically there are two: reason and practice. To enter by reason means to realize the principle through instruction and to believe that all living beings share the same true nature, which isn’t apparent because it’s shrouded by sensation and delusion.

Those who turn from delusion back to reality, who meditate on walls, the absence of self and other, the oneness of mortal and sage, and who remain unmoved, even by scriptures, are in unspoken agreement with reason. Free of discrimination and effort, they enter, we say, by reason.
