Although these unique teachings of Dharma Master Hsin Tao were carefully selected, compiled, translated, and edited by the Prajna Editorial Group, we sincerely ask for your forgiveness and guidance if there’s any mistakes or misrepresentation. Being aware of our imperfections, we therefore encourage the readers to practice the Four Reliances while reading this book:

  1. Rely on the message of the teacher, not on his personality.
  2. Rely on the meaning, not just on the words.
  3. Rely on the real meaning, not on the provisional one.
  4. Rely on your wisdom mind, not on your ordinary, judgmental thoughts.
