When we speak of practicing, there are many ways to do it. Let me select and write them down in brief. Sitting,standing, watching, listening, wearing clothing, eating and talking with people, at every place and every moment, who is it that clearly perceives all of these things?
My flesh is just a corpse, and all agonies are inheritently empty. My inherent Buddha is able to see, hear, sit, rest, sleep, walk and travel around for ten thousand miles in the blink of an eye. My inherent mind has wondrous powers and is clearly connected to everything. Waht does it look like?
You should think about this question deeply, like a cat hunts for a rat, a starving person looks for food, a thirsty person for water, and a 60 or 70 year-old widow misses her children desperately after losing them. Do not forget these questions seven for a single thought-moment, and rigorously search for the answers, so that you feel as if one thought-moment is like ten thousand years have passed. When thus you start to forget eating and sleeping, then you are close to enlightenment!
