The Power of Love and Compassion

10404902_10204126304937033_2984720428339531028_nAll Buddhas adorn their chests with the sign of virtue,

indestructible and adamant, and sit at the foot of the tree of enlightenment.

Hordes of obstructers fill the sky, boundless in number,

with various forms so terrifying

that all sentient beings who see them become crazed with fear or die.

When the Buddhas see them, They are not frightened,

They do not pale, not even one hair stands on end.

They are not moved or disturbed, they do not think of anything.

Aloof from emotions, They are tranquil and clear,

abiding in the abode of Buddhas, imbued with the power of love and compassion,

Their senses under control, Their hearts without fear,

impossible for the hordes of obstructers to upset.

 

In fact, it is They who can subdue the obstructers,

cause them to change their minds and take refuge in the Buddhas,

after which the Buddhas teach them

by means of correct diagnosis, prescription, and influence,

so that all now develop the aspiration for unexcelled,

complete perfect enlightenment, never to regress.

—Avatamsaka Sutra

    I really like the post you just send out about all Buddhas adorn their chests w/ the symbol of virtue and can therefore not only do not fear the hordes but defeat them by fighting the fire of hatred & anger w/ the water of love & virtue. I think it is for this reason that the power of good is always stronger than that of evil. B/c good has the force of truth on it’s side.
