Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD

The Dharma Realm is nothing other than the total conscious awareness of arising and passing away of all things. The realised state of the Dharma Realm is an advanced conscious awareness that embraces all that exists (and does not exist), and instantly perceives the root (karmic) causes of all things; whilst being at ‘one’ with the highest and most profound truth  This is nothing short than the achievement of Buddhahood in the world. All of phenomena reflects Buddha-nature, and Buddha-nature exists in (and reflects) all phenomena without exception. This is because the entirety of phenomena arises out of the empty essence of the universal mind. This reality is expressed as ‘all in one – one in all’, as it demonstrates that although everything appears ‘different’ in its diverse manifestation, reality is in fact a ‘unity’ existing within difference. Therefore each individual is capable of realising this unity within diversity by penetrating (and directly perceiving) the profound empty essence that underlies reality (and which binds all things together). The Dharma Realm is the realisation that the entirety of existence is interconnected, and this interconnectedness is premised upon the fact that all things exist (and pass away) with a profound emptiness.

禅的智慧与人生境界(组图)

法界,是意识所缘的一切境界,涵盖世间出世间一切事物的根源和真理,也是佛果成就的世界。在法界中,万事万物各有特殊性质而又处于统一的整体之中。所谓“一切即一,一即一切”,在一切差别现象中显出统一的法性,每个个体所见的万事万物都可以归结为终极的空性;而法性则体现在差别的现象中,又从终极的空性展开一切现象。
