The Avatamsaka Sutra says, “The Buddha is sitting in his place, which is like one thousand suns shining upon all space.”
Student: “Where is his place?”
Master: “Where are you now?”
Student: “How is it when it is bright like one thousand suns shining?”
Master: “It is as dark as midnight.”
Not being deluded by forms is to see the Buddha.
