"The chance of a practitioner getting the Buddha mind depends on his developing a 'great ball of doubt' which drives him to diligent and energetic practice. During retreat the master tries to bring each student to this state of great doubt, for only then is it possible to create an opening through which the Buddha mind can enter. The master will use different methods to do this, according to the student's state of mind, personality and accomplishment." - Master Sheng Yen
