On the [surface of the] lake, the sun and moon linger...”

Discourse 1, 21 May 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse


“...There is no place that is not a True Buddha World...” 

Discourse 2, 22 May 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued) 


"...A great bhikku can refer to a senior monk over sixty years old or a monk who relentlessly abides by the precepts. Arhats are very strict in keeping the precepts and are considered great bhikkus..." 

Discourse 3, 28 May 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)    

“...Being a great bhikku implies the following. First, he goes asking for alms. Second, he conquers all afflictions. Third, he defeats maras. Fourth, he abides by the pure precepts. Such are great bhikkus or great monks!" 

Discourse 4, 29 May 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)  


"...Does anyone know the four methods that bodhisattvas use to entice sentient beings onto the path? There are four methods: giving, loving words, beneficial conduct, and likeness-association..."  

Discourse 5, 4 June 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)  

"In sum, there are three kinds of great wisdom: the wisdom of emptiness, the wisdom of existence, and the wisdom of the tathagata. They are the wisdom to know that everything is emptiness, the wisdom to recognize all existences as false, and the all-embracing wisdom of the middle way—the highest wisdom of the tathagata."

Discourse 6, 5 June 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)
"...What is fundamental conduct? It’s very simple. The fundamental conduct for an arhat (sravaka) to attain arhatship (sravakahood) is to practice the four noble truths. How about for bodhisattvas? The fundamental conduct for bodhisattvas is to practice the six perfections of generosity/giving, precepts, endurance, diligence, meditation, and wisdom. For pratyekabuddhas, they cultivate the twelve links of dependent origination to transcend the rebirth cycle. And buddhas cultivate the thirty-seven enlightening factors and ultimately attain buddhahood..." 

Discourse 7, 11 June 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)  

“...any movement and any word spoken by a buddha are all blessings…”

“...great bhikkus and bodhisattvas have their divine might and transcendent power only due to the blessings of the buddhas…”

Discourse 8, 12 June 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued) 
“...In Tantrayana, the most important thing is lineage…”

Discourse 9, 18 June 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued) 


"...silence is the loudest thunder."

Discourse 10, 19 June 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)


“Nobody delivers you except yourself...”

“...astrology or divination, or psychic abilities… are not buddhadharma; they are merely means to attract people toward the spiritual world and eventually onto the right path.”

Discourse 11, 25 June 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)

“...we must eliminate the five obscurations and the ten entanglements entirely.”

Discourse 12, 26 June 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued) 


“The question is, how do you attain such peace of mind? …how can you pacify your mind so it is at peace?”

Discourse 13, 2 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)  


“...benefit sentient beings, and do so without any motive.”

Discourse 14, 3 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)
“...we must understand the Buddha’s wisdom: the wisdom of emptiness, the wisdom of existence, and the all-embracing wisdom of the Tathagata.”

Discourse 15, 9 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued) 
“They comprehended unattainability and reached the state of unborn endurance.”

Discourse 16, 10 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)

Discourse 17, 16 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)   


"They understood [the true reality beyond] all phenomena including the [spiritual] roots of sentient beings."

Discourse 18, 17 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)   


“There are four kinds of fearlessness… the fearlessness of complete upholding… fearlessness in resolving doubts… fearlessness due to wisdom… [and] fearlessness in repaying generosity.”

Discourse 19, 23 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)  


“If you truly want to cultivate your heart-mind, you need to act without condition. On the other hand, acting with condition is too mundane. And non-action is too sagely. Instead, you combine the mundane and the sagely together and act without condition. This is called unconditioned actions.”

Discourse 20, 24 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)  


"They appeared most magnificent, even when they had forgone all worldly embellishments.” 

Discourse 21, 30 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)

“Their magnificence is externally reflected as bright radiance and complexion, and internally as integrity and virtue. They are endowed with merit externally and virtue internally.”

Discourse 22, 31 July 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)  


“According to Vimalakirti, true greatness is when one is in union with buddhanature. This is the greatest! Hence, fame and reputation far exceeding the height of Mount Meru naturally occur when one is in union with buddhanature—when one is union with the buddha. Union with buddhanature is the greatest and there is nothing exceeding that.”

Discourse 23, 6 August 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued) 


"Their deep faith was as strong as a vajra. This phrase is even easier to explain. The great bodhisattvas have very strong—deep and profound—faith just like the vajra; it is indestructible."

Discourse 24, 7 August 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued) 


“Look at the sun, it shines upon all—good or bad. It shines upon both good and bad people, even the most evil ones. This is called all-encompassing. Like the sun, we must cultivate ourselves to be like the great bodhisattvas who bestow nectar upon all sentient beings.” 

Discourse 25, 13 August 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued) 


"The teachings of the great bodhisattvas are the most marvelous and sublime sounds ever heard."

Discourse 26, 14 August 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)


“The great bodhisattvas know about the origination of causes and conditions... They also understand that the origination of causes and conditions is illusory, like a dream. Thus, they cut off all wrong views.”

Discourses during the 2022 Seattle LSCTT and Rainbow Temple Grand Fall Ceremonies, 20 & 21 August 2022 - Chapter One—Buddhaverse (Continued)


“What is buddhadharma? Everything is buddhadharma. This is very sublime and profound. Therefore, lust, anger, and ignorance are all buddhadharma: Anger that comes from a compassionate heart; lust that is with a pure mind; and ignorance that is destroyed by having the views of both equality and inequality.”
