The recognition of Hui-Neng

Upon hearing

verses from

The Diamond Sutra,

Hui-Neng awakened

to true mind

Page 3: How Buddhism Heals

And let no dust alight.

This body is the Bodhi tree;

This mind is like a mirror bright;Carefully cleanse them hour

by hour,

Page 4: How Buddhism Heals

There is no Bodhi tree;

The bright mirror is nowhere shining;

Since there is no mind from the first,

Where can any dust alight?

I love and approve

of myself.

My mind is cleansed

and free.

I don’t agree

with you.

I am confident I do a good

job.

I’d rather not do that.

Beyond diversity, for if the opposites arise,

The Buddha mind is lost…

Four Causes of Suffering

• Having to endure the company of those we do not love

• Not getting what we want• Getting what we want, yet not

being satisfied

• Not being with those we love

Page 20: How Buddhism Heals

We have to be carefully taught

Page 21: How Buddhism Heals

Craving: the cause of our suffering

Page 22: How Buddhism Heals

Cycle of Craving

The experience ends: We want it again(We are suffering)

We have an experience and we like it

We get it andtemporarily end our suffering

“It” passes; wanting it arises again

We seek the experience again

An aside…

Page 25: How Buddhism Heals

Major life components we humans crave

• Life (and therefore death)

• Our emotional make-up

• Qualities we’re attracted to in a lover/partner

• What is Right and Wrong
