this is interesting...
is this not what we do when we chant With gohonzon?The Tathagata again preached in a verse, saying,
The supreme path of all Buddhas
Has the marks of perfect light and eternal abiding.
Those who enter meditative concentration together with [the Buddha]
In the same way realized the mind of enlightenment [bodhicitta].
When the Buddha finished preaching these verses, the great monks in the assembly at once stood up, bowed, and went on their way.
As you know i have huge problems with Original enlightenment..
The World-Honored-One replied, “Mahavairocana on the stage of wonderful enlightenment received the preaching of the Dharma from the beginningless and endless original Buddha who is of one mind and one thought.”
The World-Honored-One again said, “There is no Buddha above and beyond the ‘original Buddha of no mind and no thought.’ There is no Buddha below and no Buddha after no mind and no thought.’ The original Buddha is in essence beyond conceptual understanding. From the beginning he/it does not go nor come, does not have the nature of the threefold body, does not have the nature of the ten destinies [from hell to Buddhahood.]
The World-Honored-One again said, “The original Buddha of no mind and no thought is by nature beyond conceptual understanding. Both the conceptually understood natures of the threefold body and sentient beings in the ten destinies, and the nature of that which is without a nature, arise from the nature that is beyond conceptual understanding.”
The World-Honored-One again said, “There is nothing that teaches or receives above and beyond the original Buddha of no mind and no thought. Moreover, this is a single Buddha, and there are not two Buddhas. You all should shut your eyes and contemplate the original Buddha that is without beginning and without end.”
this is making me see something..
andThe original Buddha of no mind and no thought is by nature beyond conceptual understanding.
it's not like a common mortal eventually attaining buddhahood. it's something entirely different...something not born from or in samsara.from the beginning he/it does not go nor come, does not have the nature of the threefold body
anyway ...what does this remind you of eh?
does not have the nature of the ten destinies [from hell to Buddhahood.]
that between the parentheses [from hell to Buddhahood.] is that your interpretation or is this in the sutra...?
in any case where does the ten destinies get that meaning?
the whole japanese kamakura and then this stuff....what a watershed eh...it truly is marvelous what all came together...pure dharma..
