    The one Hundred and nineth of 108 Gates Of Dharma Illumination

    109) The one Hundred and nineth Gate; The state in which water is sprinkled on the head

    The state in which water is sprinkled on the head is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it], following birth in a family, we are at last able to realize anuttara samyaksambodhi. (Nishijima/Cross)

    The ground of sprinkling wisdom water on the head is a gate of realizing dharma; it brings forth birth, leaving the household, and unsurpassable, complete enlightenment. (Tanahashi)

    Gate Gatha:
    May we, together with all buddhas;
    Realize the true majesty of our birth
    That we attain the non-goal of ultimate enlightenment

    Reflection Prompts:

    True wisdom is the Dharma Eye.
    Prajna paramitta, Boji sowa ka

    Capping Verse:
    Not to be wasted
    So precious
    Is this human birth

    Happy Vesak to all

          “Let me respectfully remind you
          Life and death are of supreme importance.
          Time swiftly passes by
          And opportunity ist lost.
          Each of us should strive to awaken.
          Awaken, take heed,
          Do not squander your life.​“ - Life and Death and The Great Matter
