  • Awakening of Faith in Mahayana 大乘起信論

    dà chéng qǐ xìn lùn

    ""Awakening of Faith in Mahayana" is one of the most important works on Buddhism, providing the conceptual framework upon which most, if not all, Mahayanist schools derive their basic philosophy. It is called "Mahayana Sraddhatpada Sastera" in Sanskrit, and "Da Cheng Qi Xin Lun" (pronounced as "Ta Ch'eng Ch'i Hsin Lun") in Chinese. Its original Sanskrit version, however, is now lost, and the most authoritative source for reference at present is its first Chinese translation done by the eminent Paramartha (Zhen Ti in Chinese) in China in 550. There is another translation by Sikshananda in the 7th century, but this version is not as popular."

    "Then how could chi kung overcome diseases where the cause is unknown or when there is no cure? The question is actually incorrect. The expressions "the cause is unknown" and "there is no cure" are applicable only in the Western medical paradigm. The expressions no longer hold true in the chi kung paradigm. In the chi kung paradigm the cause is known, and there is a cure."
