Q134. How can we remove all the illusions that we may have created over many decades at one time, not one by one?

A. Then how would it be possible to remove all of the countless illusions by removing them one by one when many new illusions are made as fast as they are eliminated?

Trying to remove all illusions one by one is like trying to remove all of the sand from a huge river by counting the grains of sand one at a time.


When you reach the final goal, it is like all dreams immediately disappear by themselves when you wake up from sleeping. Then you can see all things clearly as they are all at once, like removing some coloured glasses that distorted your vision.
