The One Hundred and ninth Gate

The state in which water is sprinkled on the head is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it], following birth in a family, we are at last able to realize anuttara samyaksambodhi.

Anuttara Samyaksambodhi :
the supreme right and balanced state of complete truth

Ah Shokai! Of course there is one more Gate. ;)

In honor of your birthday tomorrow, I figured one more verse was in order:

Not to be wasted
So precious
Is this human birth

This gift from nowhere
Tikkun olam
Raindrops drip from ashoka branches,
Feeding the Lotus stream.

Happiest of birthdays, Jindo Shokai. [monk]

Gassho,

Open to Life in a benevolent way,
He attains the Way Supreme,
An astronaut beyond time, space, life and death.
