We call a temple a dor-lyang, which most people know from the Japanese pronunciation, a dojo. It doesn’t mean a place for fighting, but rather a place for learning, a place for finding one’s path, a place for applying one’s understanding.
This is the last verse of the Thousand Hands Sutra (Daehaeng Kun Sunim’s translation). I started putting these up daily, because with the corona virus and all the other things going on in the world, it seemed like we could all use some wisdom. But I didn’t realize how much these would touch me, or how much good just repeating a single line each day (several times) would do me. Or how powerful it would be.
Returning to and relying upon the Three Treasures of one mind (Vow 3)
I take refuge in the place for learning the truth.
Which is every place.
