The Miracle of Mindfulness

Gandhi Quote of the day:"Life is aspiration. It's mission is to strive after perfection which is self-realization."

Over the next few days I'll focus on the thoughts of Vietnamese poet and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh . Hope you enjoy some excerpts from his The Miracle of Mindfulness.

The wondrous voice,the voice of the one
who attends to the cries of the world
The noble voice,the voice of the rising
tide surpassing all the sounds of the
Let our mind be attuned to the voice.

Put aside all doubt and meditate on the
pure and holy nature of the regarder
of the cries of the world
Because that is our reliance in situations
of pain,distress,calamity,death.

Perfect in all merits,beholding all sentient
beings with compassionate eyes,mak-
ing the ocean of blessings limitless,
Before this one,we should incline.

Today I'm posting one of Ted's mosaic table tops. Have a sunny day.
