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!

Two Most respectable Monks of this century!! Reverence to both pious souls!!

Tengo confianza que esta crisis de violencia sin sentido nos lleve a un cambio de mayor tolerancia y empatía. Momento de seguir sembrando.

Through kindness and blessings of guru,
May we surpass our limited sense of self;
May we experience the joy and freedom
Of a boundless heart and mind.

Wishing you all a blessed Guru Purnima—Full Moon dedicated to celebrate the spiritual teachers!
