The Twentieth Gate
Reflection on there being no self is a gate of Dharma illumination;
for [with it] we do not taintedly attach to self.
No self (emptiness) :
a state of "pure consciousness" in which the mind has been emptied of all particular objects and images
May we, together with all beings
Reflect on emptiness
That we may be free from attachment to self
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.
