His Compassion is never ending and his vows are immeasurable
Contemplate Impermanence to realize the true mind
Where there is life there is death; where there is achievement there is failure; only this mind is fundamental and infinite. By contemplating birth and death we will realize the state of “no birth or death.”
Freedom from Suffering
The purpose of Zen practice is to help us transcend life and death and attain liberation from suffering. In order to obtain true liberation, we must first reflect on, examine, and realize what we cannot see through and let go.
