Not to study the Buddha way is to fall into the realm of shameless and erroneous ways. All preceding and succeeding Buddhas always practice the Buddha way.
-A flower falls, even though we love it; and a weed grows, even though we do not love it.
-Carrying the self forward to confirm the myriad dharmas is delusion. The myriad dharmas advancing and confirming the self is realization.
-If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?
