The Sixteenth Gate

Joy is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we abandon all
unpleasant things.

Joy :
the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying


May we, together with all beings
Realize delight and happiness
That we may put unpleasant things to rest

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.
