Jan 13 – 19

On the basis of the belief that all human beings share the same divine nature, we have a very strong ground, a very powerful reason, to believe that it is possible for each of us to develop a genuine sense of equanimity toward all beings.

Book of Serenity #45: “Four Phrases from the Engaku Sutra”

The Engaku [1] Sutra says:

“At all times, you do not raise the delusive mind.

When there are all kinds of illusory thoughts, you do not extinguish them.

Dwelling in the delusory state of mind, you do not add understanding.

Where there is no understanding, you do not distinguish the truth.”

[1]: “Engaku” means the perfect awakening of Buddha.
