Here is the audio recap of this week’s Dharma talk about the Thousand Hands Sutra. It’s such a nice guide to spiritual and personal growth, reinforcing that we are inherently complete, and endowed with a connection to everything we need to grow and develop. The audio file and text are below. Go ahead and take a listen, and if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to post them in the comments section.
with palms together,
The great saving power of all Buddhas
becomes the saving power of my one mind.
With it I can live every day free of entanglements.
The compassionate hands of all Buddhas
are the hands of my one mind.
Their touch harmonizes all seen and unseen realms.
How can words express my gratitude?
The bright eyes of all Buddhas
are the eyes of my one mind.
Through their vision
see the entire universe as truly is,
and by clearly seeing the dead,
fully understand the living.
The deep sincerity of all Buddhas
is the sincerity of my one mind.
It always brightly leads me
using all manner of seen and unseen methods.
With infinite compassion
it reveals the precious truth
of how everything in the universe flows.
The mind of all Buddhas functions
together with my one mind.
Endowed with everything,
it is utterly complete.
My past, present, and future
consciousness all become one.
Completely let go of everything,
and even this “one” disappears.
