    The one Hundred and eighth of 108 Gates Of Dharma Illumination

    108) The one Hundred and eighth Gate; The wisdom that leads us from one state to another state

    The wisdom that leads us from one state to another state is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it], having water sprinkled on the head, we accomplish total wisdom. (Nishijima/Cross)

    Following and reaching the ground of wisdom are a gate of realizing dharma; it sprinkles wisdom water on the head and achieves all wisdom. (Tanahashi)

    Gate Gatha:
    May we, together with all buddhas;
    Aspire to ultimate wisdom
    That we may know the Dharma of all the buddhas.

    Reflection Prompts:

    What is the true Dharma?

    Capping Verse:
    A stroke of lightning—
    The Flower
    In the Buddha’s hand

    Hi all

    I've only participated for a smattering of these gates, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it, so thank you Shokai for leading it once again.

    What is the True Dharma? - May we hold this question for ever on the cusp of knowing, so that wisdom, insight, and awareness guide our every step.

    Deep bows and Gassho, Tokan
