Q&A
Question:
What is the implication or how do we apply ‘mind ismyriad phenomena; myriad phenomena are the mind.’in our daily life?
Answer:
Knowing ‘Mind is myriad phenomena; myriad phenomena arethe mind’,we should not be attached to the myriad phenomenabecause the myriad phenomena are empty and impermanent innature the entire world does not have a nature of its own since itoriginates from and it is our mind.The verse offers two compelling reasons to put down our attachments; the universe is empty in character and theuniverse is just our own mind!
