No separation

When sentient beings arouse themselves to practice and always utter the Name of the Buddha Amideva, the Buddha will hear them. When they constantly reverence the Buddha, the Buddha will see them. When they continually think of the Buddha in their hearts, the Buddha will know them.  

When sentient beings remember the Buddha, the Buddha also remembers them. In these three acts (recitation, reverence, contemplation), the Buddha and sentient beings are not separate from each other. The relation is intimate. 

—Master Shan Tao, Commentary on the Contemplation Sutra

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
