At March 14, I lectured on the Consciousness-only doctrine of Buddhism at an extension lecture of Shukutoku University. The Shukutoku university satellite campus at Ikebukuro is closing in this month. So, my lecture in the campus was the final at that day.
The purpose of the Buddhism is awakening to the truth. When you awaken to the truth, you unify with the truth. The Mahayana Buddhism call it becoming buddhas. Thus, the nature of buddhas is the truth.
It requires immeasurable time to become buddhas. You are able to approach purposes gradually with continuing your efforts. It is different that the successes are not understood and there are no successes.
