In August of the same year, Jixian was officially assigned to Tianjin City. Jixian and other five counties were assigned to Tianjin.

  • Jixian County is located in a military important area. The city has been massacred so many times. It was filled with immigrants. Visible areas include Henan, Hebei, Shandong, and the Manchus, all of which left obvious traces. It originally had a lot of blending flavors and new possibilities.

The Sixth Patriarch Altar Sutra (20230930-20231004)

  • Read the full text of “The Sixth Patriarch’s Altar Sutra” online
  • Maha is big and has a vast mind, just like space. It has no sides, no square or circle, no green, yellow, red and white, no up or down, no anger, no joy, no right or wrong, no good or evil, no head. At the end, all the Buddha lands are empty.
  • Good Knowledge, what is Prajna? Prajna is the wisdom of Tang Dynasty. In all places and at all times, thinking without stupidity and always practicing wisdom is the practice of prajna.
  • What’s the name of Paramita? This is Western Mandarin, Tang Yan reaches the other shore, and the meaning is separated from birth and death. The arising and passing away of the land, like waves in the water, is called this shore; there is no birth and death when leaving the land, like water flowing continuously, that is, it is called the other shore, so it is called Paramita.
  • Good teacher, Mahaprajnaparamita is the most noble, supreme and first. There is no abiding, no going, no coming, from which the Buddhas of the three generations emerge. We should use great wisdom to break the five aggregates of troubles and worldly fatigue. By practicing in this way, we can achieve Buddhahood and transform the three poisons into precepts, concentration and wisdom.
  • Zen practitioners’ views on “life and death” are as follows: “Only knowing one’s own mind and seeing one’s own nature”, knowing one’s own “original mind” and “nature” means “no movement, no stillness, no birth, no destruction, no going away, no coming. There is nothing right and nothing wrong, no destination, no abode.” Therefore, we are not afraid of “life and death” and even regard life and death as a game.
  • The name of right view is born in the world, and wrong view is in the world; all wrong and right views are eliminated, and the bodhi nature is intact.
  • The delusion of self-nature is all sentient beings, and the awareness of self-nature is Buddha. Compassion is Avalokitesvara, joyful equanimity is called Shizhi, ability to be pure is Sakyamuni, and uprightness is Amitabha.
  • My teacher said, the wonderful and profound Nirvana, the body and functions are like this, the five yins are originally empty, the six dusts have no existence, neither exit nor entry, neither stability nor chaos. The nature of Zen has no abiding state, and it is separated from the abiding state of Zen silence. The nature of Zen is unborn, and apart from the thought of Zen, the mind is like emptiness, and there is no amount of emptiness.
  • Trouble is Bodhi, there is no difference. If one uses wisdom to illuminate troubles, this is a two-vehicle view, a sheep and a deer, and the great root of wisdom are not as good as this.
  • Talk about all dharmas without departing from your own nature. Suddenly someone asked you about the Dharma, and you said it in both directions. They both took the opposite Dharma, and came and went because of each other. In the end, the two Dharmas were completely eliminated, and there was no place to go.
  • Dear friends, all of you, please purify your mind and listen to my teaching: If you want to achieve wisdom, you must reach the samadhi of one form and the samadhi of one action. If you do not abide in the form in any place, do not have any hatred or love in that form, have no choice or give up, do not think about gains and losses, etc., and are at ease and quiet, empty and indifferent, this is called one-appearance samadhi. If you are walking, standing, sitting or lying down in any place, with a pure and straight mind, without moving to the ashram, you will truly become a pure land, this is called Samadhi of One Practice. If a person has two samadhis, it is like a seed in the ground, which is stored and nurtured until it matures. Each phase and each action is the same.
  • Now I advise all good friends to first get rid of the ten evils, which is equivalent to walking a hundred thousand miles; and then get rid of the eight evils, which is equivalent to walking another eight thousand miles; every thought can see your own nature, and often make you behave If it is flat and straight, then you can reach the Western Pure Land as quickly as a snap of your fingers, and you will be able to see Amitabha Buddha.
