Buddhist Sutra & Tantra on Vajrayogini Day

 

The universal compassion accomplished through the practice of Sutra teachings and the wisdom accomplished through the practice of Tantric teachings are like two wings of a bird.

Just as both wings are equally important for a bird to fly, so both Sutra and Tantra are equally important for practitioners seeking enlightenment.

Sutra

Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, a poem written by the 7th Century Buddhist master, Shantideva:

“A Bodhisattva is a friend of the world who, motivated by compassion, spontaneously seeks enlightenment to benefit all living beings.”

“Each human being exists within the context of interrelationships that include other human beings, all living beings and the natural world. In other words, each person is sustained by the interdependent web of life. By awakening to this principle we are able to expand instinctive self-love into an altruistic love for others; we are able to nurture the spirit of tolerance and empathy for others.”

Dr. Yoichi Kawada, From inner peace to world peace, a Buddhist perspective.

Death & Love, My Very Old Friends

When Friends Connect

My oldest friend looks for me
On a dark road
Nights I can’t sleep,
We are lonely together.

¸

We are yellow jackets in late summer,
Beating at the screen
We are two old women holding hands
At the funeral of a friend.

We are two children playingend kids eyes http-::thewitlessairhead.blogspot.co.uk:2009_10_01_archive.html
“Who Am I?”
You put your hands over my eyes
And in their darkness,
I know for sure
That at the end,

The playful stranger who appears
Is not death
But love.

ღ(̆̃̃ڿڰۣ✿
