6/108 Gates of Dharma Illumination

Rate this Entry
The Sixth Gate

Pure conduct of the actions of the mouth is a gate of Dharma illumination; for it eliminates the four evils.*

*1) lying, 2) suppression of speech, 3) abusive speech, 4) duplicitous speech

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 comtrolling actions;
That the four evils may be removed.

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
仁道 生開 - Jindo Shokai "Open to life in a benevolent way"
Just another itinerant monk; go somewhere else to listen to someone who really knows.
