The Fifty-seventh Gate
The four bases of mystical power are a gate of Dharma illumintion; for [with them] the body-and-mind is light.
The four bases of mystical power / acting at will :
1) chanda (volition),
2) vīrya (effort),
3) citta (intelligence),
4) mīmāṃsā (profound consideration)
obscure in meaning; mysterious.
May we together with all beings
Reflect on acting at will
That we may remove weight of decisions

Just another itinerant monk; go somewhere else to listen to someone who really knows.
