Life and Death is Like an Illusion

Life and Death is Like an Illusion

One day an enlightened one lost his way in the mountains and reached the state of starvation and freezing. There was no strategic attempt left in such a life and death situation. Owing to his recollection of Shakyamuni Buddha’s teaching, he settled the mind and took a seat, at once he felt body become lighter and unperturbed, where everything was the absence of inherent existence entirely. Only then were his misleading thoughts wiped out, and in the twinkling of an eye his omniscience penetrative ability saw his inherent pure self-nature. In that moment he let go of his mortal flesh, and directly entered the condition of nirvana.

Master Shen-Long praises:

Life or death is as swift as a thought, no need to be strongly attached to it;

Knowing there is not a single thing originally, at once your Dharma Body ( the mind of the Buddha) revives.

 

生死如幻

一日有道者入山;適迷途;飢寒交迫;無計所施,因憶佛陀教誨;遂息心安坐,頓感身輕恬然;一切皆空!妄念才滅,刹那照見本性矣!當下即放下臭皮囊;直入涅槃也!

神龍赞曰:

生死一念间,不必太執著!

識得本無物,當下法身活!
