    The 95th of 108 Gates Of Dharma Illumination

    Gate Ninety-five
    Read the following, place it in your heart and sleep on it. Then, tomorrow, live it until evening when you can leave a brief comment on what you may have received during the process.

    Acceptance of the right Dharma is a gate of Dharma illumination; for it eradicates the afflictions of all living beings.

    Acceptance of the right Dharma : The act of assenting or believing that which is in accordance with what is good, proper, or just with regard to reality.

    By “Dharma Gate”, We mean a teaching or practice that can lead to spiritual growth: some kind of positive outcome in terms of our practice. A way to approach the truth.

    "The Shurangama Sutra is a Sutra that acts like a demon-spotting mirror in Buddhism. All the celestial demons, externalists, and the li, mei, and wangliang ghosts reveal their true appearance when they see the Shurangama Sutra. They have no way to hide and no place to flee to. And so in the past, when Great Master Zhi Zhe heard of the existence of this Sutra, he bowed in the direction of India for eighteen years. For eighteen years, he used this spirit of utmost sincerity to pray for this Sutra to be brought to China.

    Of all the greatly virtuous and eminent monks of the past, all the wise and lofty Sanghans, there was not a single one who did not praise the Shurangama Sutra. Therefore, as long as the Shurangama Sutra exists, the Buddhadharma exists. If the Shurangama Sutra is destroyed, then the Buddha*dharma will also become extinct. ."

    Dharma has no mythos, if that is what you are looking for.
    You are walking on rock, not water!

    The path goes nowhere;
    Knowing this
    We walk every inch

    I am a novice priest-in-training. Anything that I say must not be considered as teaching
    and should be taken with a 'grain of salt'.
