If anyone in the reality of "suchness" can understand the dharma of dreamy emptiness and examine and practice it, they will through the dharma of reality conquer self and cherish mercy.

In this way they will be able to invent a discipline and devices for what is called "The Way of Purity and Universal Emancipation."

If however, they linger in this view, they will not be able to attain the proper mental state of the Zen-person.
