Lankavatara Sutra - Discrimination

The following is an extract from the Lankavatara Sutra 楞伽经
This is also called the Self Realisation of Noble Wisdom.



Mahayana Lankavatara Sutra
Translated into English by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki
Chapter 1: Ravana Asking for Instruction

"Lord of Lanka, conducting thyself in this manner, 
let thee be further purified in the way thou hast attained; 
by disciplining thyself well in Samadhi and Samapatti, 
follow not the state realised and enjoyed by the Sravakas, Pratyekabuddhas, and philosophers, which rises from the imagination of those who discipline themselves according to the practices of the puerile philosophers. 

They cling to the individual forms of the world created by their egotistical ideas; 
they maintain such notions as element, quality, and substance; 
they cling tenaciously to views originating from ignorance; 
they become confused by cherishing the idea of birth where prevails emptiness; 
they cling to discrimination [as real]; 
they fall into the way of thinking where obtains [the dualism of] qualifying and qualified.

For the Chinese version, See also:

Just the above passage is really not easy for most to understand, what more practice? 
Agree? :)

What's the problem with most aspiring to be Yogi?

All explained in the above passage too!

Do you understand the text or GM's speeches and sharings, ENOUGH to practice accordingly?

That means: Know what you can do & What you Can't!

Now this KNOW, is a real immeasurable topic too! :)

As I am positively sure that most didn't bother to follow the Avatamsaka Sutra shared in this blog, I sincerely hope that you give diligent effort to this sutra which GM Lu said is Enlightening Sutra.

That is if you can grasp what is shared by Buddha!

O! This one about Karma - 因果
As GM said that Fully understanding Karma, one is enlightened. 
Same as Sakyamuni Buddha who realised this!

Cheers all
