Apr 29 - May 5

Spring, week 6
"All beings are intrinsically endowed with buddha nature. Unenlightened beings cling to the illusion of a self. Life continues. Cause and effect are inevitable. Buddhas actually exist. Sentient beings and buddhas mutually interact. Self and other are not two. All beings are in the process of becoming buddhas." --Yamada Koun
