Do you know why Shakyamuni Buddha, after attaining the Buddhahood, wanted to enter Nirvana instead of delivering sentient beings? We have heard that we will act selflessly without ego once we attain Buddhahood or the highest spiritual level. What kind of state is that? Why does Supreme Master Ching Hai say that delivering sentient beings is still within the realm of human emotions, and that there are no sentient beings to be delivered but, rather, beings should deliver themselves?
We have to borrow many things from the world in order to survive; so what do we have that can deliver sentient beings? For this, we need to find the timeless and inexhaustible treasure that we had before we were born and will still have after we die. If we use this to deliver beings, then we will not be indebted to anyone and will be at ease when we leave the world.
