Enlightened by right views, we call forth the buddha within us.
When our nature is dominated by the poisonous elements
We are said to be possessed by Mara;
But when right views eliminate from our mind these poisonous elements
Mara will be transformed into a real buddha.
–The Sutra of Hui-Neng
From “Teachings of the Buddha,” edited by Jack Kornfield, 1993. Reprinted by arrangement with Shambhala Publications, Boston, www.shambhala.com.
