The Thirteenth Gate

Mindfulness of the heavens is a gate of Dharma illumination;
for it gives rise to a wide and big mind.

Heavens :
a common religious, cosmological or transcendent place from which heavenly beings (such as a God, angels, the jinn, or venerated ancestors) originate, are enthroned or inhabit.


May we, together with all beings
Be mindfull of the heavens
That we may attain spaciousness.

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.
