The sutra
Edited excerpt: 8min 17sec, a part of answer to a sutra **
Understanding right where you are
If you want to study this path, you must understand right where you are. As soon as you rely on the slightest knowledge, you miss the scene right where you're standing. When you've completely comprehended the scene right where you are, then all kinds of knowledge -- all without exception -- are things right where you are.
Thus the patriarch said, "At the very moment one speaks of knowledge, knowledge itself is mind. And this very mind itself is knowledge."
Since knowledge is right now, if right now you don't go another moment, but do away with your knowledge right where you are, then you'll join hands and walk along together with the patriarchs. If you cannot yet be like this, don't go wrong in your knowledge.
