[108] With Dharma Water Extinguish Anger’s Fire


Anger’s mind [is] thus [from the] habitual nature of past lives. Now having [the] thought [that] ‘I [am] already dead’, [just] let that knife cut, [if there is injury, surgery or autopsy, and that] incense [be] applied, [if being cleaned after death, as these] have nothing to do with me.


[For] all situations that [are] not agreeable [with your] wishes, [when] having [the] thought [that] ‘I [am] already dead’, [perhaps being sincerely mindful of the Buddha next], then [will you] not [be] able [to] give rise [to] anger.


This then [is] that Thus Come [One’s] transmitted samādhi Dharma water, [which] universally washes [away] those fettering karmas of all sentient beings, not [from Yìn]guāng, personally [coming] up [with] ideas falsely spoken.
