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!

Mind. No Mind. Brilliance.

Relics of Chinese monk Xuanzang rests across this lake. He traveled to Nalanda in 6th century to seek out teachings and teachers. In a world that glorifies on-demand instant gratification mindset, we forget the importance of processes, journeys, patience, and above all—to seek.
