Ordinary life and Buddhahood have no distinction. Great knowledge is not different from ignorance. Why should one seek outwardly for a treasure, when the field of the body has its own bright jewel?
Pao Chih The Nonduality Of Buddhahood And Ordinary Life
One thought on “The Body Has Its Own Bright Jewel”
This Scripture is so dear to me. In meditation years ago it came to me that “the Body is the Gift.” Whatever spiritual legacy or stream of karma may come to each being, it trains and lives but once in any particular for, each precious body. Feeling gratitude for being again one bright jewel is a frequent source of joy.
Thank you for doing this work. I will add more frequent visits to the site to my own practice.
