    The Hundred and second of 108 Gates Of Dharma Illumination

    102) The Hundred and second Gate; Entry into all conduct

    Entry into all conduct is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we attain realization of the Buddha-eye. (Nishijima/Cross)

    Entering all types of practice is a gate of realizing dharma; it acquires and completes the buddha eye. (Tanahashi)

    Gate Gatha:
    May we, together with all buddhas;
    Actualise the concept of all conduct
    That we may attain realization of the Buddha-eye.

    Reflection Prompt:

    What do you imagine all conduct or types of practice are referred to in this Gate?

    Capping Verse:
    Don’t fight the current
    Just let go
    The stream knows the way

    gassho, Shokai
    gassho, Shokai

      Thank you Shokai

      When I see things like “all conduct” or “layperson of practice” I equate them with living in accord with the Precepts.

      I love this capping verse and it definitely i something I have observed in my own life.
