sometimes i wish i knew practicing/studying buddhists (any branches of mahayana or theravada). reading through, studying, and putting into action the power of these sacred sutras and texts has become an integral part of my life. the juxtaposition of the diamond sutra with the sutra of hui-neng is completely blowing my mind right now. i feel like i am vibrating with the essence of mind and intrinsic buddha-nature that is within all of us and i really want to discuss and ruminate over it with someone. but then again is that just a needless lust to reaffirm the dharma, that of which i have already realized? havent i not been doing this thus far anyhow?
definitely going to post some powerful excerpts later.
