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.
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.
