[87] With Great Or Small Connections, Then With Great Or Small Responses 大小感则大小应


[It is] really because [the] minds of Bodhisattvas, [are] similar to [the] empty sky, without that not covered. However, sentient beings in confusions, [do] not give rise [to] Faith’s direction.


For example, like [the] empty sky, with objects obstructing it, then becomes separated [and] obstructed.


If penetrating one small hole, then getting [the] sky of one small hole. Penetrating one big hole, then getting [the] sky of one big hole.


If completely removing objects of obstruction, then with [the] empty sky that universally contains [the] ten thousand forms, completely merging without interruption.


Therefore, sentient beings [with] small connections, [are] then [with] small responses, [with] great connections, then [with] great responses.
