If someone asks whether practicing Buddhism is difficult, I shall tell him exactly it is easy. The difficulty of practicing Buddhism is only on the surface. For example, the word “fo”(Buddha) we recite every day seems difficult. When we know this word is the Sanskrit meaning a man to know the truth in life and with a heart of peace and satisfactory, then we understand. What is called “Chan” (meditation)? Don’t woolgather is Chan; what is “puti” (bodhi)? knowing the truth in life is “puti”; what is “wuming” (ignorance)? Conducting ourselves in a frog is wuming, and so on. (From Words of Chan by Shi Yongxin)
