Discussion topic： Faith In Mind
This guide to Chan practice is based on "Faith in Mind," a poem by the Third Patriarch Chan Master Seng Ts'an. Master Sheng Yen offers a guide to Chan practice based on the poem Faith in Mind . －“I did not adopt a scholarly point of view or analytical approach. Rather, I use the poem as a taking-off point to inspire the practitioner and deal with issues that arise during the course of practice.”
“The phrase ‘faith in mind’ contains the two meanings of ‘believing in’ and realizing’ the mind. True faith in mind is the belief grounded in realization that we have a fundamental ‘unmoving ‘ and unchanging mind. This mind is precisely Buddha mind.”
