The Lotus Sutra, Vol. 3

 

“You should understand, Kaśyapa: By causal explanations and various kinds of parables, I open and reveal the Buddha way. This is my method of skillful means; all Buddhas do the same. What I teach you and the others now is the utmost truth: None has attained extinction as a śrāvaka; what you are practicing is the Bodhisattva way. As you gradually practice and learn, every one of you should become a Buddha.”

《妙法蓮華經》卷3〈藥草喻品 5〉

 

「迦葉當知以諸因緣、種種譬喻開示佛道,是我方便諸佛亦然。今為汝等說最實事:諸聲聞眾皆非滅度;汝等所行是菩薩道,漸漸修學悉當成佛。」
