Prajna

If the eye never sleeps,

all dreams will naturally cease.

If the mind makes no discriminations,

the ten thousand things

are as they are, of single essence.

To understand the mystery of this One-essence

is to be released from all entanglements.


– Sosan Zenji

OUTWITTED

He drew a circle that shut me out –
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in.

Edwin Markham

The Buddha taught that one should conquer anger with kindness, wickedness with goodness, selfishness with charity, and falsehood with truthfulness.

Came upon this poem in a book by K. Sri Dhammananda ‘How to live without fear and worry’. The following evening I listened to Ajahn Brahm’s latest Audio Dharma Talk ‘Happy Buddhamas’ in which he recited this same poem. http://www.bswa.org/modules/mydownloads/viewcat.php?cid=4&orderby=dateD

We must increase and widen our circle of compassion until it includes everyone and everything!

White Tara

Wisdom

Om Tare Tuttare Ture Mama Ayuh Punya Jñana Pustim Kuru Svaha

White Tara is another representation of compassion and she is pictured as being endowed with seven eyes to symbolize the watchfulness of the compassionate mind.
