The Original Birthplace

Do you know your original birthplace? It is not where you were physically born; it is the original foundation that is the source and the origin – a place of great freedom without obstacles or hindrances. Those who have left their original birthplace do not want to return because of their sins; they have acquired many illusions while living away from home, and it is in those illusions that they now live. They have forgotten their birthplace; they do not even bother to think about such things. In the original birthplace the parents’ hearts must bleed when they think of their suffering children. They are asking their children to return instead of suffering far from home, that they will give them the world of the birthplace and cleanse away their sins, so that they may live with a clean mind and body.    

Believing the sins to be interesting and fun, the children live in sin, not knowing they are in sin. Can there be anything more pitiful and frustrating? Don’t live by yourself far from home only to die and disappear. Come back to your birthplace, cleanse away your sins and become a new person; become an eternal and never-dying immortal, and live forever in your birthplace with your parents. Then, there are no worries, no anxieties, and no stress; the five desires and seven sins and tamjinchi – desires, anger, foolishness – do not exist; it is the state of freedom and liberation, free from all human suffering and all human conceptions and habits. It is a place beyond everything of the human world. Let’s live forever with peace of mind and freedom, in this place.
