The sutra
Edited excerpt: 2min 57sec, a part of answer to the sutra **
Who is in the way?
When master Jui Yen was dwelling constantly in his room, he would call to himself, "Boss!"
And also respond to himself, "Yes?"
"Be alert!"
"I will."
"Hereafter, don't fall for people's deceptions."
"I won't."
Just arouse yourself right here, and see what it is. The one who does the arousing isn't anyone else, he's just the one that can recognize dimness and dullness. He's your own fundamental identity. This is me giving medicine to suit the disease, having no other alternative; briefly pointing out the road for you to return home and sit in peace, and that's all. If you stick to dead words, and say it really is your fundamental identity, then you're acknowledging the conscious spirit as your self, and this has even less to do with it. What I said before about depending on dimness and dullness to enter is this. Simply see what the one who can know dimness and dullness like this ultimately is. Just look right here, don't seek transcendent enlightenment. Just observe and observe: suddenly you'll laugh aloud. Beyond this, there's nothing that can be said.
