Let us allow the gentle wisdom of Hui-Hai to clearly unfold the Buddha Dharma to us:
Question: What is the right view?
Zen master Hui-Hai: To perceive without perceiving any object whatsoever is the right view.
Question: What does “to perceive without perceiving any object whatsoever” mean?
Hui-Hai: Perceiving all sorts of things without grasping — that is, not being clouded by the arising of any thought of love or hate, etc. — is perceiving without any objects. If one can see without seeing any object whatsoever, that is using the Buddha-Eye, which is like no other eye.
On the other hand, if one sees all sorts of things that cause thoughts of love and hate, etc., to arise, that is known as “perceiving objects” with ordinary eyes, and sentient beings have no other kind of eyes. This is true, likewise, with all of the other sense organs.
