Cultivating the Bodhi Path
Composed by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

Demons Test the True Way

Demons tested the True Way; only the True Way encounters demons.
Becoming brighter with each test, the more it needs to be tested.
Polished akin to an autumn moon,
In the sky, shining its light upon the hordes of demons.
When the horde of demons are transformed,
The inherent Buddha in the self-nature will manifest.
