Good fellow practitioners, the self-nature of true suchness manifests thoughts. Though the six sense faculties have the functions of seeing, hearing, and awareness, yet they are not defiled by myriad objects, and the self-nature of true suchness is always liberated. Therefore, the Pure Name Sutra says, "One is adept at differentiating the forms of all dharma/Dharma, while simultaneously rest immovably in the Ultimate Principle."....from a translation/commentary by Master Beishi Ghohan of the 6th Patriarch's Platform Sutra.
