The Perfect Place for Your Enlightenment

In the Simile of the Herbs, the Dharma rain is falling everywhere, not in only certain places. This place where you practice is the perfect place for your enlightenment. Moving is not the solution, unless you are referring to moving your own life and awakening the inner potential of Buddha within your life. As your life begins to manifest the characteristics of Buddha then your land, your environment will begin to also look like the Buddha’s perfect pure land. You have inherently within your life all the necessary abilities to change your land and your life to one of enlightenment. It is simply a matter of illuminating your life with the Lotus Sutra, or as this parable teaches, water and nourish yourself with the wonderful rain of the Lotus Sutra.
