Unless you read the Shurangama Sutra, you won’t know the key to cultivating the mind and awakening from confusion.
The Venerable Master Hsuan Hua’s said in one of his talks:
The Great Master Han Shan (Silly Mountain) once said: “Unless you read the Shurangama Sutra, you won’t know the key to cultivating the mind and awakening from confusion.” This says it exactly right, because every dharma that exists is found within the Shurangama Sutra, so there are no potentials it fails to attract. It is the essential Dharma for all generations: It is the right seal for becoming a Buddha or a Patriarch.
Meditation is like food from Nature that nourishes our Dharma-Body, which nutrients from the empty space [while we meditate], and grows healthily.
