The Twenty-seventh Gate

The Three Devotions are a gate of Dharma illumination; for they
purify the three evil worlds.

Three Devotions :
Devotion to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha


May we, together with all beings
Take refuge in the three treasures
That we may purify the three evil worlds *

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.

{* hell, the world of hungry ghosts and the world of animals)

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.
