‘The Heart Sutra’ of Avalokiteshwara: Neither Seer Nor Seen, But Just a Seeing of No-Seeing

What the universe is I am, and What I am the universe is. And there is no other at all, nor any one whatsoever. Gate, Gate, paragate, parasamgate, Bodhi! Swaha!

In the quarks and leptons there is a silent prayer

That prostrates before the inexplicable Void

As the bud awaits the light to become the flower that adores the garden

All manifestations come from the Supreme Heart

Evolving in time

Healing Buddha

Buddha Bhaisajyaguru, The Healing Buddha, Tibet 14th Century, Rubin Museum of Art, NYC

To become the timeless

A ceaseless transformation

That is only understood

Or, experienced

When you are the Awakened One,

The Buddha…

At the turn of wheel

The moon is bright

And full

Waning and waxing

To become the still point

In the mind

Where it will dissolve and disappear

At that extreme moment

There is neither, Dharma, or, Buddha

No Cause and Effect

No Nirvana, or, Samsara

“Except for the point, the still point,

There would be no dance,

And there is only the dance.”

-J

*’Except for the point….the dance’ (from Burnt Norton by T.S. Eliot)
