Rate this Entry
The Eighth Gate

Mindfulness of Buddha is a gate of Dharma illumination;
for [with it] reflection of [the state of] Buddha is pure.

Mindfulness :
attentive, aware, careful or heedful; awareness of the present moment


May we, together with all beings
Realize the skill of mindfulness;
That our reflection on the Buddha may be
Complete, sincere and without defilement..

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.
