With One Heart Bowing

 

The day has already passed, life is shorter.  

Like fish in an evaporating pond what joy is there in this?  

Great assembly!

Take heed, be vigorous.  As if your head depended on it.  

Be mindful of impermanence and never lax for an instant.

Bhikshus Heng Sure and Heng Ch'au who made a "Three Steps, One Bow" pilgrimage from Gold Wheel Temple in Los Angeles to the City of 10,000 Buddhas, located 110 miles north of San Francisco, from May 1977 to October 1979. Their purpose is to influence humankind to cease all hatred and hostility, to stop the creation of destructive weapons and to work to prevent disasters, wars, and suffering of all kinds.  The monks are dedicating their work to all beings everywhere.
