Five Points in Buddhist practice – dwell in this diamond mind

Provided you dwell in this diamond mind, applying it even in sleep, it will ripen thoroughly.  You will no longer discriminate between inner and outer, and you will fully rout the karmic-generated knowledge-ridden demon soldier.  Suddenly you will wake from your dream, destroying the citadel of reality.  You will cut down the enemy, birth and death, and residing in the capital of wisdom, protect the peace.   This diamond mind is the jewel that functions when a warrior displays valor.

Suzuki Shosan (1579 –1655)
