The Buddha is sitting in his place

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.
