Though a wheel of fire about your head
Were wildly whirling and flaming,
Just do not abandon your Bodhi Mind (Bodhicitta),
Even amidst such strong suffering.

– Avatamsaka Sutra

* Bodhicitta is the aspiration
to attain Buddhahood,
and to guide others to do the same.

One Response to “Wheel Of Fire”

  1. “I” dissolve into Am. Am dissolves into We. We dissolve into Earth. Earth dissolves into Sunlight. A Photon of Sunlight dissolves into the boundless night of the Vacuum. The Vacuum dissolves into Consciousness. Consciousness bursts with light and dissolves into “I” again. This fiery wheel is for dancing, not for clinging!
