Practice means constantly practicing, listening to all kinds of unpleasant speech and seeing all kinds uncomfortable happenings. In fact, samsara does not distinguish between pure and impure. Everything is actually pure in the first place. Pure and impure are simply determined by your own state of mind. Master Huineng said, “Since all is void, where can the dust alight?” Everyone may memorize this, but they don’t practice it. So there is no use knowing more if you don’t practice.

Just like staying fit and healthy, you need to exercise regularly.
