Majo’s One Dharma (1)

When a monastic asked Majo, “What Dharma do all the Buddhas talk about?” he answered, “All the Buddhas talk about only one Dharma. Thus, the Buddha transmitted it to Mahakasyapa with a hint. This Dharma is filling the whole universe. It cannot be understood through language and words.”

Student: “What is one Dharma?”

Master: “Shall I transmit it to you by hinting?”

Student: “Yes please.”

Master: “That’s it. Take it quickly.”

Commentary:

What can be given and taken is not one Dharma.
