The Sword of Wisdom 108

If you benefit from even one line of Buddhadharma, you should hold onto it and never forget it. If you can penetrate one word of true Dharma, you do not have to seek other teachers. One word can be enough for enlightenment. On the other hand, if you learn many methods of practice, but cannot solve the problem of birth and death, what good are those methods?

Do not waste your time on theory and concepts. Apply yourself directly to the method. Retrieve your method when you lose it. Everything I say during lectures will always come back to this point. If I do not say anything, your minds will turn forever with thoughts and fantasies. The purpose of these lectures is to bring your minds together, to focus your thoughts until there are no thoughts left. Until you accomplish this, I will continue to lecture.
