Day 5 – Compassion without end

Hanging lanterns for Buddha’s Birthday!

A little bit of a mystery in the last two lines. Don’t worry if you don’t understand it, just let it sink down within you. Even if your brain doesn’t understand it, your body will begin to.

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 it truly is,
and by clearly seeing the dead,
fully understand the living.
