Bodhidharma: On Mind-Watching

 

VIII. Pure Mind; Pure Buddha Country

If my mind is pure, every indigent-being's mind is pure. As the sutra says:

When the mind is dirty, the indigent-being is also dirty. When the mind is pure, the indigent-being is also pure.

It also said,

In order to purify the Buddha-country, first purify your mind. When your mind is purified, Buddha-Country will be purified.

If you can control the three poisonous minds well, the three immaculate precepts will automatically be perfected.
