This book series, Treatise on the Awakening of Faith in Mahāyāna, provides a detailed explanation of the true meaning of the door of the mind of arising and cessation and the door of the mind that is reality-suchness. It aims to eliminate masters’ and practitioners’ misunderstandings since the past of the meaning of the door of the mind of arising and cessation stated in this treatise. Thus, the true meaning of this treatise, which has been misinterpreted and has thus become obscure, can be revealed. This will allow the reader to correctly grasp the principle of the Middle Way of the True Mind, the tathāgatagarbha, that which is neither permanent nor extinct. The exposition and augmentation of the right principles of the Mahāyāna Path to Buddhahood will thus be broadened and expanded.
