All the Buddhas and Ancestors invariably enter the meditative state that bears the seal of the ocean. As they swim about in this meditative state, there are times when they give expression to the truth, and times when they experience the truth directly, and times when they put it into their daily practice. The merit of their doing their practice upon the surface of the ocean includes their having penetrated to the very bottom of the ocean. They make their practice upon the surface of the ocean their practice that plumbs the depths of the ocean.
