The Barrier of Zen Yard Who Can Overcome?

Ngày đăng: 10-04-2021

ONE STEP TO TATHAGATA LAND, so we would like to ask Hoang Quang which land is Tathagata land? Where is it? How can one step go to that land?


Two authors Hoang Do and Giao Hao point out:
 
The paradox here is that many errors have been pointed out from the Vietnam Buddhist Research Institute in 10 book series completed with the theme of Zen Buddhism and the Legendary Diary of Buddha, although the religious publishing house has stopped issuing permission to reprint it. Currently, more and more publishers such as Hong Duc publishers and Ho Chi Minh City Cultural and Arts Publishing House have licensed the books. Obviously, ceasing the license to reprint is not enough for the consequences of the popularity of this series.
 
Ladies and gentlemen, the beloved authors Hoang Do and Giao Hao!
 
1. You think that 10 books with the subject of Zen Buddhism and the legendary Diary of Buddha of the author Nguyen Nhan are wrong according to the opinions of Vietnam Buddhist Research Institute
 
Suppose you’re right, so why on the website of central Buddhist Association of Vietnam at 73 Quan Xu in Hanoi: phatgiao.org.vn has posted the life and enlightenment of the Patriarch Śānavāsa, Buddhanandi, Mahakasyapa, Pārśva, Aśvaghoṣa, Punyayaśas on March 26th, April 8, April 12, April 18, and April 28 respectively. All of this content is taken from the 8th book of the author Nguyen Nhan Zen series, if it is a mistake, why does the central Vietnamese Buddhist Association disseminate the book with very praising words about its content.
 
2. Religious publishing house suspend the licensing of republishing for unknown internal reasons, this stop does not mean that the books are violated or prohibited for other publishers to publish. If gold was given to his hand but he denied it, it is impossible to ban the others from receiving this gold, which is absurd. In the article, researcher Hoang Quang pointed out the error of Zen Buddhism books.
 
So first of all, we and the audience here would like to test the capacity of researcher Hoang Quang by asking some of the following questions, hoping that the researcher can prove his expertise in Zen Buddhism in appraising the Zen book series of author Nguyen Nhan. Here are our questions:
 
1. How many years has researcher Hoang Quang spent for researching and studying Zen Dharma Buddhism? Has the researcher ever practiced this Zen Dharma?
 
2. Could researcher Hoang Quang explain to us the origin of the word “Meditation institute”? when the word “monastery” was dated? Do they belong to Buddhism?
 
3. Phrases: SEE - HEAR - SMELL/TASTE/TOUCH - PERCEPTION in the sutta, what does it imply?
 
4. In the story of the Buddha's history, there’s an image of a bowl flowing upstream, so the researcher please help us understand what the meaning of this flowing backward is?
 
5. If the Buddha, in the old days, meditated to attain enlightenment, it is strange why the sixth patriarch Hui Neng struck any disciples sitting meditation, and Bodhidharma compared meditating to get enlightenment like polishing a tile to get a mirror.
 
6. In the sutras it is said: ONE STEP TO TATHAGATA LAND, so we would like to ask Hoang Quang which land is Tathagata land? Where is it? How can one step go to that land?
 
7. In the Lotus Sutra, the Buddha taught: "All beings have Buddha nature", meaning that we and the researcher Hoang Quang have Buddha nature, so could Hoang Quang researcher please show us what is your buddha nature like? How to recognize your Buddha nature?
 
8. In the Diamon Sutta, the Buddha teaches:
 
"If any one by form sees me,
By voice seeks me,
This one walks the false path,
And cannot see the Tathagata."
 
Researcher Hoang Quang please explain these four verses?
  
9. The Bodhidharma Patriarch said four sentences:
 
"A special transmission outside the scriptures
Not founded upon words and letters;
By pointing directly to [one's] mind
It lets one see into [one's own true] nature and [thus] attain Buddhahood."
 
Could compassionate Hoang Quang researcher help us understand these four statements clearly?
 
10. When the Buddha was born, he said: "In the heavens above and (earth) beneath self is the honoured one.", please researcher Hoang Quang help explain what the SELF word in this sentence means?
 
11. In the sutras it mentioned the phrase: THREE REALMS and ONE THOUSAND CUBED WORLD-SYSTEMS (ONE BILLION BILLION BILLION OF THREE REALMS) so would researcher Hoang Quang like to help us to see how three realms and one thousand cubed world-systems are structured? Where are they?
 
12. Please researcher Hoang Quang let us know what is the process of forming the earth?
 
13. In the Platform Sutra, the sixth Patriarch Hui Neng taught Zen Buddhism when announced would break up the Heretical Path, so please would researcher Hoang Quang let us know what paths are Heretical paths? And what is the right path?
 
14. In the Shurangama Sutra the Buddha seven times pointed out the SEEING NATURE and HEARING NATURE to Ananda, and yet he did not realize, surely the researcher Hoang Quang recognized the seeing nature and hearing nature, so please can compassion researcher teach us the seeing and hearing nature?
 
15. In the Heart Sutra, The Buddha taught that this Prajnaparamita is the mother of Buddhas, so researcher Hoang Quang please explain to us why Prajna (wisdom of all things) is considered the mother of all Buddhas?
 
16. In the Vimalakirti Sutra there is a lay buddhist Vimalakirti, although he is just a lay person, so why the top disciples of Buddha like Mahakasyapa, Maudgalyāyana, Sariputta, Subhuti, and Kayayana, Bodhisattva Manjushri etc ... all are afraid and speechless when being questioned by lay Buddhist Vimalakirti, so they did not even dare to confront lay buddhist Vimalakirti, so please researcher Hoang Quang study, think and explain where lay Buddhist Vimalakirti get his wisdom from? What is the implication of the sutra of a lay buddhist silence all the Buddha's great disciples? 
 
17. In the forty two Sutta Chapter, the Buddha taught: "OFFERING A THOUSAND BUDDHAS IS NOT EQUAL TO OFFERING AN NO- LEARN NO- ATTAIN PERSON", so please researcher Hoang Quang let us know: Who is this no-study no-achieve person? How to make offerings to him?
 
18. In the old days of the Buddha's time, there were no microphones, so how did the Buddha teach to the thousands of disciples sitting around him, so please, compassionate researcher Hoang Quang make sense of this?
 
19. People say BUDDHISM IS ENLIGHTENMENT, so would the researcher please help explain: Enlighten what? And what enlighten? 
 
20. Nowadays, many people preach a lot about BUDDHISM, so we would like to ask the researcher Hoang Quang, what does the “Buddha” word mean?
 
21. About the origin of Copper pagoda on Yen Tu mountain in Quang Ninh, when it was built? Who built? and built for what?
 
22. What are the reasons for the pagodas in the northern region of Vietnam to worship Buddha statues holding lotus flowers? What Dharma method do they follow when worshiping Buddha statue holding lotus flower, could researcher Hoang Quang help explain?
 
23. Why do most pagodas in Vietnam worship patriarch Bodhidharma, so would the researcher explain how this Patriarch practiced Buddhism?
 
24. In the three Vesak celebrations in Vietnam, which repertoire presented the quintessence of Buddhism?
 
25. Nowaday, What is the reason every monk/nun teaches inconsistently from each other, so how to tell the right from the wrong?
 
26. Currently, on many websites, there are rampant discussions about the words “Heretical Path”, so would the researcher Hoang Quang try to help us analyze the meaning of this word? Who is doing the Heretical Path?
 
v.v...
 
Above are 26 questions we want to ask Hoang Quang researcher to answer and email us, our email address is lauranguyen@gmail.com, we would like to tell Hoang Quang researcher clearly the researcher should answer us and everybody here thoroughly the above 26 questions before going to visit author Nguyen Nhan and the management of Tan Dieu Zen pagoda to confront the quintessence of the Buddhism.
 
Why?
 
Because the 26 questions above are only a small part of the quintessences of Buddhism, which is categorized as the barrier of the Zen yard, still standing outside the Zen house. Moreover, confronting directly between the two sides need to answer immediately (do not think a bit at all), and reasonably rather than take time to extract and deduce from the scriptures. In the sutta This is called an unhindered gifted orator.
