Day 62 – True repentance

So, “Why repentance,” you may be wondering. On the one hand, that’s just this section of The Thousand Hands Sutra. But it’s an interesting text because it is, in my opinion, a complete manual for spiritual practice and growth. While the earlier parts talked about relying upon our inherent nature and foundation, the later part has pieces aimed at overcoming the things that are holding us back, things that pull us back down into the same old ruts.

if my mind becomes completely empty,
this can be called true repentance.
