Now our Bodhi-Dharma Dojo Foundation has got started.
Let us continue to concentrate on Bodhidharma
We consider again the deep meaning of what Bodhidharma said at the Court of Emperor Wu.
The Emperor Wu asked Bodhidharma:
“What is the first principle of Noble Truth ?”
Bodhidharma : “It is Noble-less, like an empty space.”
Emperor Wu: “Who is standing before me ?”
Bodhidharma : “Do not know.” ＝〉 My own being is transcending Intellectual Activity by Brain.
“Noble-less” is the First principle of noble truth. Why ?
Noble-less Noble is the true meaning of the Noble Truth
Empty space never tries to be noble, but is breathing his Noble-less Noble, reflecting its own being. Think about a person who is trying to be noble. Does the person look like Noble ?
Please see Fig.1
which is our empty land before the Pooja performance.
The empty land is Noble-less. In fact, Pooja could be performed there.
because the land was empty devoid of any structures of human activity
An un-invited guest can walk without obstruction in the empty land.
Thus the empty land never tries to be noble, but is breathing his Noble-less Noble, reflecting its own being.
Ø Emptiness enables everything, which is noble.
Ø Emptiness is Sunyata in Sanskrit.
Ø Sunyata is Fundamental Function of this world,
which is transcending any Intellectual Activity by Brain.
