PROPER FAITH IS RARE, SIX
Subhuti said to the Buddha:
“World Honored One, will there be living beings who can develop a true belief in these words, sentences and chapters when they are expounded to them?”
The Buddha said: “Subhuti, do not speak like that.
“In the last 500 years, before the final passing of the Tathagata,
“there will be those who will observe the rules of morality and perform good actions which will result in blessing.
“These people will be able to develop a faith in these sentences which they will consider as embodying the Truth.
“You should know that they will not have planted good roots in just one, two, three, four, or five Buddha lands.
“They will have planted them in countless thousands and tens of thousands of Buddha lands.
“Upon hearing these sentences, there will arise in them a single thought of pure faith.
“Subhuti, the Tathagata knows and sees all;
“these living beings will thus acquire immeasurable merits.
“(Because) they will have wiped out false notions of an ego, a personality, a being and a life, of Dharma and Not-Dharma.
“(Because) if their minds grasp form (laksana), they will (still) cling to the notion of an ego, a personality, a being and a life.
“If their minds grasp the Dharma, they will (still) cling to the notion of an ego, a personality, a being and a life.
“(Because) if their minds grasp the Not-Dharma, they will (still) cling to the notion of an ego, a personality, a being and a life.
“Therefore, one should not grasp and hold on to the notion of Dharma as well as that of Not-Dharma.
“This is why,
“the Tathagata always said:
“‘Ye Bhiksus, should know that the Dharma I expound is likened to a raft.’
“Even the Dharma should be cast aside; how much more so the Not-Dharma?
