Huang-po: The Transmission

Huang-po: The Transmission

At the very moment when one understands the Tao and recognises the Mind,
one is then free of body and mind.

One who reaches the ultimate source is called a Sramana.

The fruit of a Sramana is the cessation of false thinking.

This fruit cannot be attained through worldly learning.

Using the mind to seek Mind and depending on others for insight, how can one reach or acquire the Tao?
