The universe is as the boundless sky – image by Sam.
During the week-end of celebrations at Throssel for the Buddha’s Birth there was a photography challenge. To catch an image which reflected the closing verse we use at the end of meal times.
The universe is as the boundless sky
as lotus blossoms above unclean water
pure and beyond the world
is the mind of the trainee
O holy Buddha we take refuge in thee.
When I saw the challenge I immediately thought of catching an image of the sky reflected in water. Then moments later I saw the image above and knew I’d not be able to match it. Here published in gratitude to Sam and to his patient dad and Sam’s brother too.
