Contemplation: The Objective Realm of the Buddha

After reading the guidelines for practice, take this as your object of meditation:

How can there be any dharma [thing] distinct from the Buddha? [There cannot.] All of the hundred realms and thousand suchnesses are the objective realm of the Buddha.

Great Master Chih-i, quoted in Foundations of T'ien-T'ai Philosophy by Paul L. Swanson, p. 134
