Words of Wisdom for Oct. 1, 2019:
The Great Gate of Charity

"Like unto space it knows no boundaries;
Yet it is right here with us, ever retaining
its serenity and fullness;
It is only when you seek it that you lose it.
You cannot take hold of it, nor can you get rid of it;
While you can do neither, it goes on its own way;
You remain silent and it speaks; you speak and it is silent;
The great gate of charity is wide open with no obstructions whatever before it."

— Hsuan-chiao, Cheng-tao Ke on the Tao
from D. T. Suzuki, Manual of Zen
