Buddhism: Your Invisible Worlds


The Great Teacher Tiantai stated in Words and Phrases of the Lotus Sutra:

When reality and wisdom are fused in harmony, this constitutes the Law of causality.

In other words, the fusion of reality and wisdom refers to the state of attaining Buddhahood in one’s present form, when the reality of all phenomena in the universe is fused in harmony with the wisdom of the practitioner. At that instant, the practitioner’s single moment of existence manifests the wisdom to perceive the Law of causality.*
