Paradise is right here, right now, in all directions

Tong Songchol says : “They say that paradise is in the west. So the Sixth Patriarch Huineng asked where the people in the west went if people in the east chanted and went to paradise in the west.

If you open up the eye, you’ll see that everything lives in the great Light. In fact, we, too, are nothing but the great Light. So if you realize that everyone is buddha, and respect and serve them as such, then you’ll come to see that paradise is right here, right now, in all directions.”
