Bodhicitta is the moon of the mind.
Bodhicitta is the sun of the mind.
Bodhicitta is the jewel of the mind.
Bodhicitta is the nectar of the mind.

The cloud of compassion having incessantly spread forth,
it dispels the two opposites of being and non-being,
A marvel has appeared in the mid-sky- Behold!
O Bhusuku, the own-form of simultaneously arisen bliss!

Almost 10 years ago, we began a joyful audacious effort to catalyze more ethics and empathy in our world. While much work remains to be done, I rejoice in the work of The Center thus far. My personal gratitude to many who have helped along the way and to the incredible individuals and partners who are working with us! I cherish and celebrate each one of you!

Here is a snapshot of our 10 Years:

Near me, I saw
a single cricket;
it was moving the grains of the hillside
this way and that way.
How great was its energy,
how humble its effort.
Let us hope
it will always be like this,
each of us going on
in our inexplicable ways
building the universe.
