Like a Firmament

Like a firmament, devoid of edge or centre,
Meditate on vastness and infinity.
To understand the innate truth,
Unite skill and wisdom.

Like the sun and moon in all their glory,
Mediate clearly without darkness,
Knowing that all beings are your parents,
Love and show compassion to them.

Use the ocean as a parable,
Meditate without drowsiness or distraction.
To see the self-mind,
You should follow straight the gurus’ words.
Like this great Earth
Meditate with unshaken firmness.
To make yourself a vessel of the Dharma
Meditate beyond all words.

Quotes

‘When I say “extinguish yourself” or “throw yourself away” or “let yourself fall way” or ‘”kill yourself” this is the same as “live in a bigger way” or “become one with all things”‘

‘Dying the great death the reality of life appears’

— Harada Sekkei Roshi
