Master’s Spiritual Dharma Talk 19
Someone asked, Master’s Spiritual Dharma Talk 18 said that a master treats disciple with transcendent attitude. This article is so beautiful and respectful.
May I ask master? Before, master said a disciple should be often mindful of master and so on .
May I ask master? The chapter about mindful of Buddha perfectly declares … memorize Buddha and be mindful of Buddha, we must see the Buddha at present or in the future.
If the attention is mindful of the master over the attention is mindful of Buddha, is there any difficulty to go to the Pure Land?
If the answer is yes, how to fix the direction toward right road? Please teach me, my dear master.
Thanks a lot. Amitabha.
Master answered, dependence now is for independence.
Be dependent on master, Dharma, Buddha (or any Buddha) and so on,
when you are free from everything thoroughly, all dependence will stop finally.
As we depend on a boat across the river and arrive at the other side of the river.
We go on shore and don’t continuously depend on the boat anymore, we walk and won't hold the boat in the arms.
Likewise, the ultimate stop of all dependence is “no dependence.”
