OPEN YOUR EYES, TAKE A LOOK AT THE
WORLD. Records of the 1978 Asia-region visit by the
Venerable Master and members of the American Buddhist Association.
In Penang the Venerable Master said: "The
Buddha said, 'A11 living beings have the Buddhanature, a11 can become
Buddhas.' Hence, even if a living being does not believe in
the Buddha, he still has an inherent Buddhanature, so how
can we exclude him from Buddhism? Unless one can run
outside of empty space and the Dharma realm, one cannot run
outside of Buddhism. Whether he believes or not is just a
matter of time. If you do not believe in Buddhism this life,
I"11 wait for you until your next life, and on and
on--even for measureless kalpas--! w111 still wait for you.
"If we expand the measure of
our hearts, then a11 human beings can unite and benefit
the world. For the rise and fall of a country, every person
bears a responsibility.
