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!

Reverend Kazuo Yoda, a short monk with gigantic heart and wisdom (akin to StarWars’s Yoda...only that his real name is Yoda) passed away yesterday. He had been battling cancer with the same charm and wit as he would greet any friend. I had known him since my childhood days and learnt much from his enthusiasm and his humility. He was Abbot of Shanti Stupa in Orissa, India and a temple in Kobe, Japan.

His presence will be deeply missed 🙏🙏🙏
