Happy 2009

A thousand eyes observe and a thousand hands reach out,
To guide living beings bewildered at the crossroads.
He vows that all sentient beings will leave suffering,
And reach the other shore, Mahaprajna.

When every thought is sincere, every thought penetrates;
In silence, responses are quietly received.
When you reach the end of the mountains and rivers,
You are free to roam throughout the Dharma Realm.

--Venerable Master Hsuan Hua
