Layman Pang said, “Everyone has a Sutra. However, there is no one who can read it because it is formless, nameless and textless. If you have ‘I’, that is self, you can neither read nor listen to it. If you happen to be able to read it, you will become one with the principle of no birth and no death. Then, you don’t have to follow Bodhisattvas and don’t have to try to become the Buddha.”
Student: “What is it like?”
Master: “It is open all the time.”
The Sutra is never wet even in water and never burns in fire.
