synopsis
Reader of the sutras: Ma Prem Maneesha.
The sutra
Be thoroughgoing
Now that you have taken up this affair, you must steadfastly make yourself thoroughgoing, and sit upright in a room with what you've truly experienced and awakened to in the course of your life. It's like crossing a bridge made of a single plank carrying a two-hundred-pound burden: If your hands and feet slip, you can't even preserve your own life, much less save others. When monks came seeking the path, Mu Chou would say, "An obvious case: I forgive you thirty blows."
Wu Ye of Fen Yang told questioners, "No false thinking!" Whenever Lu Tsu saw a monk enter the gate, he would immediately turn around and sit facing the wall.
