[85] Bodhisattvas And Us Have The Same One Essential Nature 吾人与菩萨有同一体性


Of our minds, with [the] minds of Bodhisattvas, [they are with the] same one essential nature.


We, due [to] confusions contradicting [it] thus, relying [on] this mind-nature, give rise [to] confusions [and] create [evil] karmas, [to] receive all sufferings [and] afflictions.


If knowing then, [that] this mind that gives rise [to] greed, anger [and] ignorance, is the same as [the] mind of Bodhisattvas [with] perfect realisation [of] precepts, concentration [and] wisdom, then [when] giving rise [to] minds [and] moving thoughts, how [is each] one not [that of] Bodhisattvas manifesting supernormal [powers, to] speak [the] wonderful Dharma?
