Connection And Response For Mutual Interaction 感应道交

感应道交

感应道交者,念佛功成,众生机熟,为感。
无心扳缘众生,而于众生自然现益,为应。
道交者,即所谓:

「菩萨清凉月,常游毕竟空。
    众生心垢尽,菩提影现中」也。

古德法师
《佛说阿弥陀经疏钞演义》

Connection [And] Response [For] Mutual Interaction

That connection [and] response [for] mutual interaction, [is to have] mindfulness [of] Buddha’s efforts accomplished, [and] sentient beings’ capacities matured, [with this] as connection. With no-mind pulling up sentient beings [with these] conditions, and for sentient beings naturally appearing [to] benefit, [with this] as response. That mutual interaction, [is] then so-called,

‘Bodhisattvas [are like the] pure [and] cool moon, constantly travelling [within] ultimate emptiness. [With] sentient beings’ minds’ defilements exhausted, Bodhi’s reflections appear within.’

Dharma Master Gǔdé
(Elaboration [On] Commentary [On The] Sūtra [In Which The] Buddha Speaks [Of] Amitā[bha Buddha])
