“Attain a mind that abides nowhere.”
~ Diamond Sutra


This famous line from the Diamond Sutra is one I’ve been making the focus of my meditation and mindfulness each day as of late… exploring the new realms of awareness and understanding I have yet to unlock.

This was the line that Hui-Neng, the sixth patriarch, heard and immediately attained awakening from. It is also the line which gave King Tran-Thai-Ton, who established the Tran dynasty in Vietnam and was known as the “Great Monk-King”, his own spontaneous experience of enlightenment.

Perhaps it will be a useful tool for you, as well. xo
