Le Mental cosmique by Hsi Yun

By Hsi Yun

Le problème de l. a. vie est le problème de los angeles souffrance ; il ne comporte qu'une seule answer : écarter l'ignorance. Dès que jaillit sambodhi (l'Illumination ou satori), l'ignorance cède los angeles position à los angeles Connaissance (prajna). On nomme prajna l'état de moral sense de l'être ayant obtenu le satori, mais dans le présent ouvrage ce terme est synonyme de psychological cosmique. Les Maîtres Zen se refusent à toute ingérence étrangère, ils font de leur indépendance une doctrine majeure du Bouddhisme Mahayaniste.

L'initiation que le Seigneur Bouddha conféra à Mahâ-Kâshyapa lui donna los angeles réalisation soudaine, elle fut transmise à toute une lignée de maîtres, le record que nous avons sous les yeux est le récit des enseignements reçus de l'un d'eux : Hsi Yun, qui vécut au 9e siècle.
