With our body resting on the earth, no different from the earth, with our mind resting in the sky, no different from the sky, we encounter the vastness of heaven joined with the primordial depth of earth—how they actually come together in our own being. This state serves as the basis for our activity in world.




Prerequisite: Level IV
