About True Practice
What does it mean by true practice?
It means “without notions”.
True practice means purification of all notions and consciousness,
So the first thing to do in Chan Ding is to have no thoughts.
When there are no wandering thoughts,
You could be detached from all forms,such as the four forms stated in Diamond Sutra.
There will then be no attachment to forms, and your mind is then empty.
Thus, there is no thought.
All actionable dharma exist in our mind as wandering thoughts and illusions.
All inactionable dharma rely on having no thoughts.
Therefore, for each practitioner,
A true practice is to have no thoughts.
Follow the precise Chan Ding instructions,
Practice is in your daily life and always be in the state of no thoughts.
This is the true practice.
