Chiang Wei-nung

‘The ten directions are all within the sky. But actually they are all within a single thought of our mind. Using the sky as a metaphor and then dividing it into ten directions reminds us that just as the the ten directions are part of the sky so are the ten realms of existence that include all beings simply part of a single thought. But the ten directions are fictions and remind us that we ourselves and all others and all things are likewise fictions.’ (Commentary on the Diamond Sutra)

Does that mean that the radiant light is also a fiction? I am reminded of a cheeky post I put up on the Ino’s Blog while I was reading the Shobogenzo.
