From the Depths of Understanding

From the depths of understanding, a flower of great eloquence blooms: The Bodhisattva stands majestically
upon the waves of birth and death, free from all afflictions.
Her great compassion eliminates all sickness,
even that once thought of as incurable.
Her wondrous light sweeps away all obstacles and dangers.
Her willow branch, once waved,
reveals countless Buddha Lands.
Her lotus flower blossoms a multitude of practice centers.
We bow to her. We see her true presence in the here and the now. We offer her the incense of our hearts.
May the Bodhisattva of Deep Listening embrace us all
with Great Compassion.
[Homage to Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara]
