    The 62nd of 108 Gates Of Dharma Illumination

    The Sixty-second Gate:

    Read the following, place it in your heart and sleep on it. Then, tomorrow, live it until evening when you can leave a brief comment on what you may have received during the process.

    The faculty of wisdom* is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we really see all dharmas.

    A “Dharma Gate” is a teaching or practice that can lead to spiritual growth: some kind of positive outcome in terms of our practice. A way to approach the truth.


    Koan:



    Most note worthy replies:

    May we, with the wisdom faculty strong,
    See through illusions and all that's wrong,
    May we perceive with clarity,
    All things in their true reality.

    With eyes free of dust
    All things true
    Come into focus

    Notes:
    * Wisdom: mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment
