the extent

bodhisattva vow
attributed to japanese
zen teacher
and the last sentences may we extend this mind over all beings so that we and the world together may attain maturity buddha's wisdom this mind what mine is that it's mind that farm

that you know looks at everything has ah
as an avatar of the buddha

for example if by any chance a person should turn against us become a sworn enemy and abuse and three prosecutors we should sincerely bow down with humble language in the belief that he or she is a merciful heart
tar of buddha who uses skillful devices to emancipate us from our sinful past actions
so if someone's being rude to us this is saying
reverently believe that this is a merciful have a towering buddha
and if you can believe that then you can say
respectful to me
please be kind i need you to be kind
i mean i say this to him by already believe that you are offering me you are offering me a chance
get a buddha would offer me
good offers a chance to respond to what's happening
with this mind this mind of compassion
and this mind of compassion says please speak kindly
i give you the gift to ask you to jesus
and i can do this i can ask for this great gift of kindness
the buddhist teaching me to be kind
this mind if we expand this mind to whole beings which means to every event
inwardly and outwardly
to every person and animal and tree and cloud
and raindrop and pain and pleasure and fear
if we had the mind which sees all these things as the buddha's buddha dharma coming to us
this mind that extends this to all things this is the way to reach maturity in buddhist wisdom together
with all beings so we extend his overall beings and then we together with all things we realize
maturity and buddha's wisdom
we realized for example that paul beings are just
our conscious construction
and the buddha's teaching is coming to us through all beings

but this is a foul

and also this is a
no it's a wow it's a promise and it's also a prayer
the prayer to be like this

for to get this
i don't remember but it hit some
india rinzai zen temples in japan many of the rinzai zen temples in japan
ha are descended from hochman
and even the ones who aren't descend a hawker and highly influenced by heartless and this person tory is it a cycle of hercules
so are the zen teacher hockley road
a text called the song of zazen
and system sums and sellers check this song thousand
is there's a liner which costs something like buddhas and sentient beings are like
ice and water
or ice and i get this ice the ice is water right it's frozen water right so
buddha's sentient beings are like frozen and
solid and liquid water
the to a aspects of the same of the same thing

which is which
i don't think he said which was russian
really he said that the that the melted ice is the borders or but maybe sit around
maybe listless if that will see the melted ice is the boy has said you can put warmth onto the ice melts
yeah so

i wonder how do you feel about that
robert really believe me that whatever comes
the bodhidharma
the teaching of the enlightened ones for like that practice that tv
since takes practice it takes practice to believe it
implemented takes practice to implement a hurry well you say it takes practice but you can also say it is practice to implemented implementing that is that is the practice that he's talking about
would extend this mine you had this mind for this particular person who's been
whatever way challenging perhaps
the for this particular person who has been not challenging
who's been kind of life
easy to receive
but don't stop there this easy to receive guest is the buddha term
so this guest is not to be held on to
alex done this mine which sees everything as a buddha dharma extended to all beings
that's the just a difficult practice
an imagined extending it all beings which would mean for each moment
each moment
i have respect their there has happen
so there's a chance for the bodhisattva of compassion and which says moment after moment
moment after moment can on moment after moment comes out cause enemies
observing current say world own our own cries moment after moment observed the cries of the world
which means observe the cries of the world and also
observe the boy saatva who deserves the cries of the world with compassion
so what's coming is cries but also the buddha dharma which reminds us
to observe whatever's coming with compassion
which means with gratitude with generosity
listen to the cries of suffering games with gratitude not that you're grateful that their suffering
but you gratefully receive the cries of their suffering
you gratefully received the cries of their suffering
has the buddha's teaching to remind you to listen to everything with i eyes and ears of compassion

some moment after moment
kanzi on which which is a double think is moment to moment remember the body sought for great compassion and moment after moment regard listen to watch the world's cries listen to and watch listen to watch
smell think of the world's cries moment after moment do that which means moment after moment think of a great book the great bodhisattva
pick up the great body surface
these are beings who have learned to receive everything has brought his teaching

it's not so i can believe in teaching but believe in teaching that everything's a kitchen
so you believe that teaching her birthday my wife
ah well it's like believing in a sense of that take a bath
that that's a good idea
to consider what's happening as reality been given to buddhism buddhist teaching being given to you
bet on that way of dealing with things
i got home in a bad today i'm going to bed tonight when i bet this afternoon
on receiving everything as buddha's teaching hundred of that fun
remembering buddha's teaching to listen to everybody
with compassion to look at everybody with compassion i'm in a bet on that
that would be believing buddha's teachings of buddhist teaching is have a mind like that have a heart like that that's what is teaching
and also if somebody starts talking about
the teaching of conscious construction only
listen to that teaching with compassion look at that person who is teaching this difficult teaching with compassion even as teaching even as person is teaching buddhism might be teaching buddhism
it's possible
yeah it's possible the buddhist teacher is actually
a vehicle or an avatar and put his teaching his muslim much what they're saying is
and what you're interpreting but the buddhist teaching is coming through everything
better yet
and then extend that mind to all situations
he said
what i was a promise of allow and sense for promise
he says when i
a student of dharma so this this this is a master's student of done
he's a student of the buddha's teaching which he say everything is teaching him all the time
so when he does this
when high a student of dharma when i look at the world
how is the never failing manifestation of the mysterious truth or the to target of the buddha such a dirty that's when really a promise that's more like a prayer
a prayer in a sense of this is the way he wants this is a kind of relationship he was
with the world he watched the relationship of
what i'm looking at
i'm not going to wait till later work whenever i'm looking at is the mass is the truth of the buddha that says that his prayer of southerners you should he wants to have
here he's addressing someone that's right he's talking to the universe he said
when i look at the real form of the universe he's he's now talking to the universe
he's he's praying to the university saying this is kind of religion but when i look at the universe i'm talking to the universe now and i sang to the reverse when i look at the universe or i could say i look at you
whenever you are
as the unfailing manifestation of the buddhist truth
i'm talking to you universe did you i'm talking to
yeah that's right you're addressing the universe
in this way he's addressing the universe
this is one way you can do it you can listen his way of doing
yes the he was it
you read it


when i look at the real form
are they real form
real is form form is real
when real his form and farmers real than everything is manifestation of the buddhist teaching
does if there's gonna be yeah
you can discriminate between form and real real is forming farmers real and there's no difference to real informed
and so if you're looking in that way paul is the never-ending manifestation of the mysterious truth as the to togheter
i for miss to me
he's a real emptiness
yeah but real more than internists real is also the emptiness is form
real real is the way former really is
an emptiness is a waveform really is
form is really acting
an emptiness is really form
and when to see things that way that everything
is teaching you the dharma and when you see everything away then you see
the form is really empty so
already is really empty but we have to have this compassionate attitude towards everything
you are to see that everything is the teaching
so goes around goes around and around treated with compassion you see the real
can you see the reality between with compassion
i think i've found that at have worse and event an emptiness for sale
you seek founder the comes marcy teaching as ethics to are here i i don't go to the realm of emptiness i go into the realm of karma
well you could be but you could also just say the thing that's coming
here oh i see you're saying that you sometimes going to karma rather than receiving was coming as a teacher now i received a teaching as my karma he received a tissue as your karma you mean in the usa your job infestation of causes and conditions you see the
teaching as manifestation of causes and conditions than ten brings me here at this moment in time
you see what's happening as causes the condition which brings you here at this time
except others teaching scan for and
you are realize hey you
yeah and as i go with everything is coming for it is
is the buddha's teaching guess it was great
i lose track of it lot at times
yeah what he is a lost track of dragonborn you just said that that's quite a practice but he didn't have actually struggle i have a stretch
the other some people do we sometimes lose track of it we sometimes
veer off the track
how did discouraged and we sometimes get discouraged
so then if we examined the discouragement
that will be part of the way to protect people from our discouragement
if if i examined my discouragement that will protect people from my discouragement and a them thanks salmon at him if i confess and examined by knowledge and licked examined my discouragement that will protect beings
and i usually ah
exactly we examined and discouragement together with our practice friends
the food isn't a body surface and people in the sanga
our excursion up
one marked one more thing from husker before we go away or following up on jackie's question are here today sort of
several a for the say i think i've heard you say that
let's not dwell in the past
very sound like a good recovery
here we are back in the present
the is not a part of cut off
higher consciousness snap part of
she's higher consciousness did i hear you said
ah yeah who doesn't he doesn't consist of the container consciousness
yeah exactly that is for dessert
the dharma is the nature of the thing
the gorgeous and asia thing with the dharmas is also a teaching about the nature to say
you know if the teacher is teaching about the fact
but in a teaching about the thing is not the thing and toddler
because this thing can give totally transformed and the dharmas realized by totally transforming this thing which is of teaching about
so that that that there's a teaching about this unconscious mind which is a result of our past karma but the results of our past karma part the dharma teachings of the dharma know the teachers of dharma come from the complete transformation of our past karma
so when i realized with that's the end of the transformation of our past karma
is completely free of karmic activity and it can send messages to come of consciousness so that this result of past karma can be completely transformed into more enlightened like
this guess there's a transformation that's that it is if the transformation that his the transformation enlightenment the buddha's enlightenment is the transformation of what
a pet of the results of past karma
the transformation
a moment the the teaching is to the transformation that isn't that he changes there sometimes without that transformation
well you could say it's there but what i'm saying is that run the teaching somehow comes in to our active consciousness into our conscious life that the moment we consciously receive it it transforms the results of our costume it transformed our unconscious when we can
consciously receive it received the teaching for when will receive what's happening as the teaching that transforms
the results of our past which is our unconscious mind which supports our conscious mind so an unconscious mind that supported by the unconscious mind receives the dharma the unconscious mind is transformed on the spot at that moment says the willingness to to get him out the unconscious
mine's supported a conscious mind which was willing to receive the teaching teachers come all the time everything is the teacher but sometimes our past karma allows us to open to what's happening as the teaching so you heard the same but open to what's happening as the teaching and some of your acting cautiously
okay cool
and that's because your past her allowed you to open
so somehow you didn't have a good karma so that you have a move an unconscious which supports you actually be willing to consider
this or perhaps everything that comes to your conscious mind
as the teaching as are teaching as the buddha's teaching
and when you receive one thing is if you're open to everything being that transform here on countess in one way if you open to this as the buddhist dharma that trend frontage another way so just be open to anything as the buddha dharma transforms it i think opened every
nothing transforms it in a more profound way
and when this unconscious is completely transformed that's what we call buddhahood
so that will be that what we will we will be attaining that all of us
better than as soon as possible of course but it looks like it
some of us me to ecuador a destiny that's not really a problem
problem is getting with the program
and considering welcoming everything
has the buddhist teaching
i've tried there's no problem
the tension equally extreme to very gay
