How To ‘See’ [The] Buddha [And] Hear [The] Dharma All Day
[With] śārīras not able [to] prostrate [to them, and with] monasteries not able [to be] personally teach [one, this] has what that [is] lacking?
Promptly, [when] able [to] see [a] Buddha image, immediately do contemplation [of it as the] true Buddha.
Seeing [the] Buddha’s sūtras [and the] Patriarchs’ words, immediately do contemplation [of the] Buddha [and] Patriarchs [as] facing [to] advise oneself.
[There] must [be] respect [and there] must [be] reverence, without laziness [and] without negligence, then all day ‘seeing’ [the] Buddha, all day personally taught [by] all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Patriarchs [and] good-knowing friends, [with the] śārīras [and] monasteries said!
