Tan Weng Sim #The Sixth Patriarch Huineng
“The mind is the stand of a bright mirror, do not allow it to become dusty,” said a senior monk.
However, the sixth patriarch Huineng replied, “Buddha-nature is forever clear and pure, / Where is there any dust?”
As a young and illiterate peddler of firewood, Huineng heard the Diamond Sutra 金刚经. He then traveled 800 km to the area in North China where the Fifth Patriarch was expounding the text above. Thereupon Huineng’s propounded response, the fifth patriarch transmitted the law to Huineng.
The Sixth Patriarch Huineng 六祖慧能 returned to South China and continued to propagate the law for the next 37 years. He believed that all people possess the buddha-nature and that one’s nature is originally pure. Instead of reading scriptures, building temples, making offerings and praying for rebirth in paradise, one should simply seek to discover one’s own nature.
Certainly, the way to discover one’s own nature is through calm and wisdom. We only attain it when we are freed from deliberate thought and from attachment to things. To Huineng, the traditional method of sitting in meditation is useless. Because tranquillity is not motionlessness but is the state of having an unperturbed inner nature and an absence of erroneous thought.
If one sees one’s own nature, enlightenment will follow suddenly, without external help.
This is a nicely-detailed painting using the technique of Chinese ink on rice paper. In the mounted process, the artwork is flattened out and laminated to several more sheets of rice paper to make it thicker, yet pliable. Also, a nice silk border is added around the edges of the painting with the addition of a wooden frame. A high quality yet meaningful artwork for your Zen collection.
