Refuge

Lord Avalokiteshvara
I take refuge in you, and in all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in all realms
I take refuge in you, in your boundless compassion, wisdom and peace
I take refuge in you, and in the fundamental Buddha-nature within

I take refuge in you, my heart’s core, my beloved, my teacher
I take refuge in you, as you embrace me, as you shine through me
I take refuge in you, as you lead me again and again to the other shore

Taking refuge in you, may I set upright all that I have overturned
Taking refuge in you, may I hold a lamp high in the darkness
Taking refuge in you, may I carry compassion to all beings

I take refuge in Buddha-nature
I take refuge in the path of liberation
I take refuge in the great Bodhisattva way

^Thank you for that. It is quite moving.
We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are that reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all. - Kalu Rinpoche
