“For instance, lotuses do not grow in highlands but only in muddy swamps. Likewise, the Buddha dharma will never arise again in those who have witnessed the non-active dharma and entered remainderless nirvana, but rather, it only arises in sentient beings mired in vexation.”

Therefore, the prettiest and purest lotuses grow from the lowliest silt.
In other words, if you intend to attain Buddhahood, then you must stay in the human world because it is the place filled with the five desires, together with greed, anger, ignorance, arrogance and doubt; these are just like silt.
Only in the human world will you encounter all kinds of sentient beings’ thoughts, strange and weird beyond your imagination.
These are precisely the necessary causes and conditions to help you achieve Buddhahood.

I do appreciate Triceratopses’ replies, though his replies only do harm to himself, unless Triceratopses starts to repent of his wrong statements on this thread and dedicate all his sincere remorse to convert to a positive Bodhi way cultivation.
This is how it truly works with regard to the Bodhi Way cultivation!
