The Seventeenth Gate

Abandonment is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we turn
away from the five desires..

Abandonment :
to leave completely and finally; to give up control


May we, together with all beings
Renounce any and all attachments
That we may be free of desires

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.
