Bodhidharma: On Mind-Watching


IV.B. Three Different Cosmos Enlightenment Gives You Freedom from

Bodhidharma:8 All the karmic sequences in the three different cosmos only came from the mind.

If you awaken the mind, even though you are in the three different cosmos you will be free from them.

Three different cosmos are three kinds of poison: Greed, the world of desire; Anger, the world of visual form; and Ignorance, the formless world.

By these three poisons all bed karmic causes will be created and karmic effects will be built; thus, allowing entry into the six branches of karmic sequences(i.e., wandering around like a wheel).

These are what we call, three different cosmos.9
