Non-Action Tao: Pali Asamskrta, transliterated Non-Action (Vô-Vi:无为), that is, there is no action on it nor form nor color, nor phenomena, nor cycle of birth, growth, change, demise. Non-Action is an absolute truth, Nirvana, Tao, a Non-Being and True Being.
Thus, a Non-Action performer does not dwell on physical appearance as well as in mind. Though the practicer does and thinks in all Dharma practice, their mind does not cling to themselves, nor deliberate differentiation between self and others, in form of sentient beings, that is they attain the true form of Nirvana, and true emptiness and mystical existence.
Lord Master taught the ‘Non-Action’ approach was only the Right Way, and it reflects the true tradition of Lord Buddha Sakyamuni, because his seal of mental communication is “the Right Dharma is intangible, and Nirvana is beyond thinking”, separate from its appearance, language, but existent in the mind to mind transference and attainment, which have been through 33 patriarches.
Patriarch Hui Neng only used a mind to mind communication. Lord Master has said: “The Non-Action is the core of Buddhism, it is based on the tradition of Buddha Sakyamuni.”(Awakening Stanza)
