Master Langye’s “Original Purity”

Master Langye’s “Original Purity”

A monastic asked Zen master Langye, “Purity is originally all embracing. How is it that mountains, rivers, and the great earth suddenly appear?” Langye said, “Purity is originally all embracing. How is it that mountains, rivers, and the great earth suddenly appear?”

Student: “Why did the master repeat his student’s question when he was asked instead of answering his question by his student?”
Master: “Purity is originally all embracing. How does this question suddenly appear?”

Commentary:
The illusion of Purity blocks you from seeing the Purity before your eyes.
