Here is the great Earth,
filled with the smell of incense,
covered with a blanket of flowers,
the great mountain, the four continents,
wearing a jewel of the sun and moon.
In my mind I make them the Paradise of a Buddha,
and offer it all to You.
By this deed, may every living being
experience the pure World.

The unknowable can be experienced but not known.
It cannot be reduced to knowledge, although your heart can sing its song:….
The people who have touched the unknowable
gather together to share. The sharing is not verbal; it cannot be verbal.
The sharing is of their being, they pour their being into each other.
They dance together, they sing together,
they look into each other´s eyes, or they simply sit silently together.
That´s what was being done with Buddha, with Krishna, with Jesus in different
ways… The lovers of Krishna were dancing with him.

” You want to know what a sleeping soul is?
Think of a sleeping person.
He continues to breathe, because his body does it for him.
But he knows nothing of himself.
He is alive, but he gains nothing from this life.
Do you understand what I mean?”

“Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow
come and go like the wind.
To be happy, rest like a giant tree in the midst of them all.”
