I realized that I forgot to post the recording for the seventh week of this series of talks, so here it is. This was a fun one, so I hope you enjoy it!

My one mind is the Bodhisattva of
Compassion, so I return to my one mind
and rely upon it.

If I entrust everything I’m searching for
to my one mind,
I will realize that the path I seek is in
everything around me,
and inherently “I” does not exist,
so there is no need to obtain something else.
I will find the one who says
there is no need to obtain something else.

My one mind is the Bodhisattva of
Compassion, so I return to my one mind
and rely upon it.

“Living” “Dying”
Such things are not my true essence.
Thus I will achieve one mind,
which transcends all distinctions
such as realms of the living and the dead.

My one mind is the Bodhisattva of
Compassion, so I return to my one mind
and rely upon it.

Virtue, precepts, and actions in harmony
with the Dharma
are all done through mind.
I vow to attain these without delay.

My one mind is the Bodhisattva of
Compassion, so I return to my one mind
and rely upon it.

One mind,
the Way that isn’t a fixed path,
it’s inherent brightness is never troubled
by birth and death.
I vow to realize one mind without delay.

My one mind is the Bodhisattva of
Compassion, so I return to my one mind
and rely upon it.

Let me know that all Buddhas exist
within my one mind,
the place where enlightenment is attained.

My one mind hears and answers
all the cries of the world,
so I return to my one mind and rely upon it.
