   153. Formless alms giving, or giving alms without your mind abiding in false notions, means that when you are giving alms, you will not have the notion of the self capable of giving alms, the person receiving the alms, and the object being given as alms. And of course you should not harbor the idea that you may be repaid after giving the alms. You do good deeds and yet do not expect your kindness to be repaid, and that is called formless alms giving. Formless alms giving means that you seek no interest but intend to completely meet the needs of other people, alms given without any care for costs or recompense. The virtue and merit of formless alms giving are infinite.

   

   

   

   154. Giving alms with your mind abiding in false notions. Such alms giving shall be called form-based alms giving if giving alms is for the sake of fame, and benefit, and for fear of falling into the evil path, and even for the purpose of obtaining one’s health and blessing. Form-based alms giving belongs to limited virtues and merits.

   

   

   

   155. It is relatively easy to be free of an ego, a personality, a being, and a life. But to attain real Buddhahood, one must yet pass the two other difficulties: heart form and dharma form. Heart form and dharma form however are two precipices which are extremely difficult to break through.

   

   

   

   156. One must examine and perceive who himself is in a state free from an ego, a personality, a being, a life, a dharma, a non-dharma, an entity, and a nonentity, and at the same time live in the real world to verify in a down-to-earth manner the distance between the self in the real life and the self of Tathagata. You ascend the mountain to observe and examine and descend the mountain to verify the distance. You shall repeat the process again and again before you can understand the profundity.

   

   

   

   157. Many people put up the figures of Buddha and Jesus Christ inside the house for the purpose of worshipping. Many people cling tightly to scriptures. They do so because they are still constrained by heart form and dharma form. It is for this very reason that Buddha tells us to chuck away the rafts after we are ferried across the river. And this is also why Jesus Christ tells those people who always have Lord on their lips, “I don’t know you”.

   

   

   

   158. Lifechanyuan believes that a person who seriously seeks to attain Buddhahood should build a stupa in his mind and that although the exterior stupa is important, the interior stupa is even more important. Buddha tells us, “all forms are seen as unreal”. Therefore, the stupa that has a form is illusive, and the real stupa is formless stupa. We should build stupa in our mind, we shall help those pious Buddhist believers to build stupas in their minds instead of wasting a lot of manpower and money on the building of resplendent and magnificent exterior stupas. The exterior stupas are forms, only the stupas in mind are formless, and only formless stupas are the real stupas.

   

   

   

   159. The Way Of Buddha is only a stepping stone and a ferry, and is not the heaven per se. Therefore, after you have completely understood the way of Buddha, you will inevitably enter Lifechanyuan. Without the baptism of the spiritual river of Lifechanyuan, you can not ascend the spiritual mountain and reach the Faramita.

   

   

   

   160. All rules are Buddha’s rules, and yet all rules are not Buddha’s rules. Buddha has no settled rules. Buddha's rules is always variable according to the situation.

   

   

   

   161. Our settled place for LIFE—guided by Buddhist teaching and following the direction of life pointed out by Jesus Christ, we will move closer and closer toward the Greatest Creator.

   

   

   

   162. Nature is the Greatest Creator, the ancestor of Buddha, and Allah, but nature is at the same time Satan. Nature is the origin, Tathagata, and fountainhead, but nature is at the same time tributary. Nature can be innate and acquired. The innate nature is clear and limpid and spotless, the acquired nature is in a riotous profusion of colors but is also full of dregs and dirt. Innate nature is inborn nature, acquired nature is developed and learned. Innate nature embodies the characteristics of the Greatest Creator, god and Buddha, while acquired(inherence)nature represents the nature and instinct of life after transmigration, and habit or second nature refers to the survival inertia of man after the set of thinking is formulated.

   

   

   

   163. For a clear-sighted mind to perceive the nature, we should first understand the origin of LIFE, the structure of LIFE, the essence of LIFE, and the evolution of LIFE. If we cannot obtain a clear understanding of these issues, we will not be able to perceive nature, and thus we cannot perceive our nature of origin. Only if we have perceived our nature, can we have an enlightened mind. If we don’t understand nature, for example the nature of beast, man, Buddha, and demon, our mind will only be befuddled and we can not have an enlightened mind.

   

   

   

   164. If one wants to attain Buddhahood, he must voluntarily achieve the penniless state, not only disowning his money, fame and gain, properties, belle, family, and social status, and the like, but also abstaining from arguing with earthlings on account of a certain idea that he sticks to. What’s more, he should not kill life and eat flesh. If you want to enter the Thousand-year World in future life, you must have perfect human nature.

   

   

   

   165. The infinitely merciful Buddha with boundless beneficence has already built a raft to ferry life across the sea of misery to the Faramita. People wishing to attain Great Vehicle can reach the other shore of heaven by following the teaching of Buddha. The virtue and merits of reciting and explaining Diamond Sutra will exceed those of the seven-treasure alms giving, which are as numerous as the sand grains of the Ganges. The retribution will be inconceivable.

   

   

   

   166. Those wishing to attain minor vehicle have an ego, a form, and scripture. Those wishing to attain middle vehicle dissolve the ego, the form and the scripture. Those whishing to attain the Great Vehicle have no ego, no form and no scripture. Those wishing to attain the Supreme Vehicle smash Buddha, form and scripture on the other shore. Viewed in these perspectives, those who burn joss sticks, worship Buddha and recite sutras belong to minor vehicle. Those who explain sutras to others belong to the middle vehicle, those who preach Buddhism and conduct meditations belong to Great Vehicle, and those who abuse Buddha and sutras belong to the Supreme Vehicle. Attention, please. Only those people who are accomplished in the way of Buddha and have attained Tao are in a position to abuse Buddha and sutras. Ordinary people should never do so, otherwise they will be deeply sinned and beyond redemption.

   

   

   

   167. If we are always thinking of Buddha in our mind and if our minds are always persistent in the thought of Buddha, we may never see Buddha and can never attain Buddhahood. “If you set your mind to the success of something, you may be frustrated with failure; and yet you may succeed in something you have accidentally and unintentionally set about doing”. I have once again emphasized that we don’t follow the path of god, the path of Buddha, the path of immortal, and the path of man, but we shall only take the way of the Greatest Creator. In fact if we followed the way of the Greatest Creator, we might one day discover that we have achieved the path of god, Buddha, immortal, and man.
