Re: From Impermanence to Buddhahood

The nature of all things is Buddha. The nature of all things has no self nature. When the nature of all things is realized, appearance causes and conditions are hidden, yet when manifesting appearance becomes present. Like a TV there is no image when it is off. When you turn it on, you see images.

Re: Zen teachings

Yes, but arguably the purpose of Zen is not to "know". It is to go beyond gaining and knowing. “One day Shi Tou’s disciple Dao-Wu asked, ‘What is the essential meaning of buddhadharma?’ “Shi Tou replied, ‘No gaining, no knowing.’ “Dao-Wu then asked, ‘Can you say anything further?’ “Shi Tou answered...

Re: Zen teachings

We know very little by direct experience, though we know a lot by concept. We know a table by concept, but the direct mind knows very little about the table.

It's not one way or the other. It's showing your mind.

Re: "transmission outside the scriptures"

Our direct mind is what we know best. You can bullshit about what a Buddha knows or does not know or whatever you think you know all day, well that's how you dwell in delusion my friend. If you read scripture and get it yourself, then you don't need a teacher. If you don't get the scripture, then yo...

Re: What's in simple, brief explanation, emptiness?

There ain't a dharma to obtain; that's emptiness. Prajnaparamita says "no this, no that." That's no other the four extremes.

I will again expel your fear, and bring prajnaparamita to light.

Why not? Because I say that, in all dharmas...

Ok. Hahaha. Because of you posters, I will espound a few words. You need a guidance of a teacher because there is a reason and that is you need it. If you don't need it, why need a teacher. Nobody can assess for you whether you need the guidance of a teacher but yourself. You cannot assess for me wh...
