Practise Throughout Your Entire Life
Some people hope for blessings or power to practice from a bodhisattva or the Buddha. Others wish to practice so they can use what they learn to help others. There are still others - and this is the best approach - who see practice as just their entire life. Outside of cultivation there is nothing - life itself becomes practice. They do not try to do anything, yet everything gets done; and when asked, they will say they have done nothing. We should aspire to this... Ch'an Master Sheng Yen.
