The Forty-fifth Gate

Knowledge of names and forms is a gate of Dharma illumination;
for it clears away many obstacles.

Names / Form:

a word or a combination of words by which any object of thought is designated / the shape of a thing or person


May we together with all beings
Clarify our understanding of names and form
That we may be assured of a clear path

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.
