24. The Bodhisattva Wonderful Sound


Text: “[Thereupon the bodhisattva Wonderful Sound, without rising from his seat] or swaying his body, entered into a samādhi.”


Glosses on the right:

without swaying—the distant past

samādhi—Land of Eternally Tranquil Light


Summary: This passage is saying that to become enlightened to the truth of the distant past is to be in a state in which “the body does not sway.” To enter the Land of Eternally Tranquil Light without having to eliminate obstacles of illusions is called “samādhi.” This is the samādhi of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
