To operate the Tao six times a day implies to operate the Buddha-Way in the six sense roots all the time.
By operating all the good conducts of enlightenment so as to control the six sense roots without abandoning them, is called operating six different kinds of the Way.
Stupa is nothing but body and mind; bright wisdom is the real ceremony of encircling the stupa.
Past sages attained Nirvana by operating this Way, but people today do not understand this Tao. They cannot be called Men of the Way.
The ignorant ones, without operating within, rather look outside for karmic results thereby tiring themselves, by encircling the stupa day and night. But, that is not beneficial for self-nature at all. What a pity it is!
