The Fifteenth Gate

Compassion is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we do not
kill or harm living beings.

Compassion :
a feeling of distress and pity for the suffering or misfortune of another


May we, together with all beings
Realize the depth of compassion
That we may appreciate the impermanence of life.

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.
