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
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.
