The Fifth Gate
Right conduct of the actions of the body is a gate of Dharma illumination;
for [with it] the three forms of behavior* are pure.
*actions of body, speech, and mind.
the manner in which a person behaves, esp. on a particular occasion or in a particular context.
May we, together with all beings
Realize the skill of controlling actions;
That the three forms of behavior may be cleansed.
May this offering bring peace to all beings
May our actions contribute to the harmony of The Universe
And, may all hearts and minds be opened to The Present
