Wisdom from Chinese Literary and Buddhist Classics
Speak not words of fame or gain.
Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, when in deep
NOTE: When Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva was
practicing the profound wisdom of perfection,
the attainment enabled him to realize that the
Five Skandhas─form, sensation, perception,
volition, and consciousness compose a false
notion of the “self.” By gaining insight to the
fact that all phenomena in the world are empty
in nature─that nothing in this world is
unchanging, independent, or substantial, he
was able to transcend all suffering and adversity.
