He Seeks the Dharma with a True Mind;
Transmits It to Him
Patriarch Bodhidharma took a look, "Really? Ah!
It really is red snow." Actually, the Patriarch had the intention of
helping him, he just wanted to test his true mind.
Well, the Patriarch was moved and said, "I did
not come to China for nothing, after all! I have met someone who seeks
the Dharma with a true mind, to the point he could cut off his own arm
for the sake of Dharma. He truly has a bit of sincerity! All right! I
will transmit the Dharma to you."
Thus, the Patriarch taught him with the Dharma
door of a mind-to-mind seal and certification. He taught him with a
direct pointing to the human mind that would allow him to see the
nature and realize Buddhahood. He taught him how to cultivate it and
how to apply effort. He said, "In China, you are the second
patriarch," and transmitted to Dharma Master Shen Guang the Proper
Dharma Eye Treasury, the Wonderful Mind of Nirvana.
