This mind is the Buddha” says the same thing. Beyond this mind you’ll never find another Buddha. • “The Buddha is your real body, your original mind. This mind has no form or characteristics, no cause or effect, no tendons or bones. It’s like space.” This means Buddha is your true nature, but you need to find it and wipe all the stuff out of the world. Also, meaning to wipe everything in your mind. • “If, as in a dream, you see a light brighter than the sun, your remaining attachments will suddenly come to an end and the nature of reality will be revealed.” This shows what it is like to find nervona, to find enlightenment. http://users.libero.it/seza/bodhidharama.pdf
