Sadhumati

Description

“Longya said to his community, ‘Those people who penetrate the study must pass beyond Buddhas and Patriarchs. The Master of Xinfeng said, “If you see the verbal teachings of the Buddhas and Patriarchs as if they were your mortal enemies, only then will you have the qualifications for penetrating the study.” If you can’t pass beyond them, then you will be deceived by the Patriarchs and Buddhas.’ At the time there was a monk who asked, ‘Do the Patriarchs and Buddhas have any intention to deceive people or not?’ Longya said, ‘Tell me, do rivers and lakes have any intention to obstruct people or not?’ He went on to say, ‘Although rivers and lakes have no intention to obstruct people, it’s just that people now can’t cross them. Therefore, rivers and lakes after all become barriers to people. You cannot say that rivers and lakes do not obstruct people. Although the Patriarchs and Buddhas have no intention to deceive people, it’s just that people now cannot pass beyond them. So Patriarchs and Buddhas after all deceive people. Again, you cannot say that Patriarchs and Buddhas do not deceive people. If one can pass beyond the Patriarchs and Buddhas, this person surpasses the Patriarchs and Buddhas. Still, one must completely realize the intent of the Patriarchs and Buddhas : only then can one be equal to those transcendent people of old. If you have not yet been able to pass through, if you study the Buddhas and study the Patriarchs, then you’ll have no hope of attaining even in ten thousand aeons.’ The monk also asked, ‘How can I be able to avoid being deceived by the Patriarchs and Buddhas?’ Longya said, ‘You must be enlightened yourself.'” – Yuanwu
