Are you remembering to recite these? (just the bolded text, not what I write!, lol) There sure are a lot of ideas here, aren’t there?! I didn’t realize just how many individual concepts and instructions for spiritual practice there are in The Thousand Hands Sutra. That said, I’m glad we’re giving each one it’s own space!
This verse, and the text accompanying the photo above serve to remind us of a critical point: our center, our inner awareness is the starting point that can dissolve and transform what we’re facing. It may not vanish in an instant (or it may!), but when we start relying upon this inner moment, this ship that is our life and body begins to change direction.
(Homage to the Twelve Buddhas who Dissolve All Karma)
Homage to the Supreme Buddha
who takes bright and bright mind as his center,
and so is never entangled by anything.
