Chapter 10: Sun and Moon in One’s Sleeve
Then all theology and religion and philosophy
are just commentaries,
You have got the essential thing
right in your hands.
This buddha-nature knows no death, no birth -
it knows only eternity.
No beginning, no end.
It becomes oceanic.
The whole universe becomes its home.
For the first time
there is not even a fence
between you and the universe.
You are the universe.
This is the meaning of finding the buddha.
Come back, slowly, silently, gracefully,
carrying the experience,
Sit for a few moments as a buddha.
And carry out
your twenty-four-hour activities,
remembering that you are a Buddha
and all your expressions should be of wisdom.
Can we celebrate the ten thousand buddhas?
