The Thirty-eighth Gate

Reflection on impurity is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we abandon the mind that is tainted by desire.


not pure; mixed with extraneous matter of inferior or contaminating nature


May we together with all beings
Practice avoidance of impurities
That our minds may be free from 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.
