  • Summary

As the Buddhist doctrines say, "Put down the butcher's knife, and become a Buddha immediately." This does not mean that we have to wait until we put down the butcher's knife to become a Buddha. No! We only need to turn within and "listen inwardly to our self-nature", then we will immediately behold our Buddha Nature.
We have read many scriptures and heard about "listening inwardly to our self-nature", but we do not know how and why. Why don't we say "look inwardly", or "touch inwardly", or "feel inwardly," instead of "listen inwardly"? It is because we really can hear It! We do not listen with our ears, but with our hearts; we can really hear our self-nature! Why do we say "listen"? It is because there is music; there are Buddha's teachings; there is inner heavenly music...that sends our souls soaring and elevates us happily to the Buddha's Land. Therefore, the Buddha said that we must "listen inwardly to our self-nature".
