Three Haikus

Post by Caoimhghín » Sun Jun 23, 2019 8:08 pm

Something came to me today and I figured I might share it:
Thus come, thus gone, he,
who has neither came nor went,
enthroned in man’s breath,

he, like the turtle,
withdraws six appendages
and is clothed in light

illuminating
the unilluminated
with three shining cures.

-Caoimhghín 2019
I'm not a poet or anything, but sometimes I like to dabble.
歸命本覺心法身常住妙法心蓮臺本來莊嚴三身徳三十七尊住心
城遠離因果法然具普門塵數諸三昧無邊徳海本圓滿還我頂禮心諸佛

In reverence for the root gnosis of the heart, the dharmakāya,
for the ever present good law of the heart, the lotus terrace,
for the inborn adornment of the trikāya, the thirty-seven sages dwelling in the heart,
for that which is removed from seed and fruit, the upright key to the universal gate,
for all boundless concentrations, the sea of virtue, the root perfection,
I prostrate, bowing to the hearts of all Buddhas.

胎藏金剛菩提心義略問答鈔, Treatise on the teaching of the gnostic heart of the womb and the diamond, T2397.1.470c5-8

Quite good, man. :twothumbsup:

Love the first stanza.
