Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva


Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva

Ventures so bravely

Against the stream of

Longing, anger, and ignorance,

Overcoming fear until

Kindness and compassion are all that remain.

I wonder if it’s all true,

These mind chimes that ring

“Ego keeps you bound,” nothing more or less, like

Shattering the glass crutch yet again.

Heaven knows how many times the jailer can

Validate his own existence.

Anybody else in here feel the way I do?

Round after round



Outside conditions

Determine inner


I drift like a moth toward the

Seductive notion that

Against all evidence to the contrary

The problem is

The solution.

Venture so bravely

Against the stream.
