- 禪那,譯為「思惟修」,常想這件事。什麼事?就是話頭。研究「念佛是誰?」這句話,這叫參禪。其實參話頭也是妄想。不過是以妄制妄,以毒攻毒的辦法,用一個妄想來消滅多個妄想。參話頭的功夫,需要經過長時間才能有所成就。所謂「久參有禪」。  --宣公上人一九八o年十二月禪七開示  >> 參禪是開悟的方法

-... 那麼六祖大師由草裏邊出來了,聽惠明大師這樣講,就對他說:「不思善,不思惡,正恁麼時,那個是明上座本來面目?」好的你也不要想,壞的你也不要想,正在這個時候,如何是明上座的本來面目?看!(做厲聲喝狀)惠明大師被六祖大師這麼一問,即刻就開悟了。開悟後,他還問:「上來密語密意外,還更有密意否?」還有比這個更妙、更祕密的嗎?六祖大師就說:「與汝說者,即非密也。汝若返照,密在汝邊。」這個祕密的在你自性裏邊,我若能說給你的,那就不是密了。

一般人迷到密宗上,以為密宗這就是密了,密宗都有一個咒念,例如念庵啞吽,這還有一個聲音,有一個字說得出來的。真正密的,也無聲也無色,不落於色聲香味觸法,那才是祕密的,也就是六祖大師所說:「與汝說者,即非密也。汝若返照,密在汝邊。」我告訴你的,那就不是祕密了!所以一般人不要被密宗迷了,說:「這是最上的法,這是真是不得了的。」是法平等無有高下,佛法是平等的,沒有那個是高那個是低,那個是上那個是下。你用那一個法相應,那一個法就是妙法;你與這個法不相應,那個法就不是妙法。這並不是那個法不是妙法,因為和你不對機。   -- 百日禪選輯(一):自己生死自己了   一九七○年十一月二十日宣公上人開示於三藩市佛教講堂
