Garden of Selflessness

An Australian Practitioner

PureInsight | February 28, 2005


How many seeds of "self" have we
sown over countless lifetimes?

Here within our human world, a soil
most fertile for all things of "self," thriving
upon an endless thirst. Maintaining the
centre of its own universe, when will its
bubble finally burst?

It dominates one's heart and thinking, pervading every moment through time.
Offering a freedom all too false, realms of
illusion where myriads of beings confined.

Can we follow the path to weed out its
ways until this domain of "self" rules no
more? To cultivate instead, the garden
of "selflessness," rising to the harvest of
the "Great Buddha Law."
