The18th Anniversary of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua’s entering into Nirvana falls on June 17, 2013. Venerable Master’s mind encompasses the entire Dharma Realm to the ends of empty space just as this verse on the sea of our nature composed by the Venerable Master:
With the Dharma Realm as substance, what could be outside?
With empty space as function, what is not included?
The myriad things are level and equal, apart from discrimination
With not a single thought arising, words and speech are ended.
“If you can be like this, you will understand that the sea of the nature is completely empty. You will roam in the great void, roaming until there isn’t a trace of ignorance to be found in the great sea.”
A verse composed by the Venerable Master speaks how the Venerable Master’s mind functions:
All living beings are my family;
The universe is my body;
All of space is my university
Kindness, compassion, joy and giving are my functions.
My name is ‘Empty and Formless’.
Amitabha and Welcome to the new Wondrous Dharma website!
2013 starts with the improved ‘one stop’ website of wondrousdharma.org to make
available the wonderful teachings of the Buddha to every person in the world
at the touch of the button incorporating more opportunity to interact and share.
Today’s technology in mass communication gives us two choices: to harness
the internet for the betterment of the world which we all share or to merely sulk
and complain that the internet is riddled with more junks, gossips and fantasies.
Wondrousdharma.org seeks to harness today’s mass communication for the
betterment of the world we live in by incorporating features for blogging.
The teaching of the Buddha is good at its beginning, good in the middle and good
at its end. That is, the teaching of the Buddha is relevant and applicable 3000
years ago, relevant and applicable in our present daily lives and will be relevant
and applicable more than 3000 years from today. Why is this? It is because the
teaching of the Buddha addresses the minds of people, to uncover the inherent
wisdom within each one of us. There is oneness with every living being, the
environment and the entire universe simply because everything came from the
mind; this revamped website, wondrousdharma.org is doing its little bit to help
explain the common bond between living beings and the environment extending
to the entire cosmos.
May every person find peace and harmony with themselves, with other people,
with other living beings and with the environment.
