Lankavatara Sutra Chapter 2, Section XX II & XXIII

Using the same source as usual...

  • Don't dis the Bodhisattva - related canonical texts and followers therein.
    (Yes, Zen is outside the canonical texts, but that doesn't mean one throws out the canonical texts.)

  • But even those who exhaust their merit finally enter Nirvana.

  • False discrimination consisst in attachment to names and attachment to objects. as realities in and of themselves as inner and external things.

  • Perfect knowledge is realized when one casts aside the discriminating notions of form, name, reality, and character. We should discipline ourselves in this
