The great Tao is like a flood
It can flow to the left or to the right
The myriad things depend on it for life, but it never stops
It achieves its work, but does not take credit
It clothes and feeds myriad things, but does not rule over them
Ever desiring nothing
It can be named insignificant
Myriad things return to it but it does not rule over them
It can be named great
Even in the end, it does not regard itself as great
That is how it can achieve its greatness
Subhuti, in the practice of compassion and charity a disciple should be detached. That is to say, he should practice compassion and charity without regard to appearances, without regard to form, without regard to sound, smell, taste, touch, or any quality of any kind. Subhuti, this is how the disciple should practice compassion and charity. Why? Because practicing compassion and charity without attachment is the way to reaching the Highest Perfect Wisdom, it is the way to becoming a living Buddha.
If, meeting with encompassing foes, each with swords drawn to strike him, he thinks of the Cry Regarder’s power, all their hearts will turn to kindness.
…I am the seed that can be found in every creature, Arjuna; for without me nothing can exist, neither animate nor inanimate.
But there is no end to my divine attributes Arjuna, these I have mentioned are only a few. Wherever you find strength, or beauty, or spiritual power, you may be sure that these have sprung from a spark of my essence.
But of what use is it to know all this, Arjuna? Just remember that I support the the entire cosmos with only a fragment of my being.
If the disciple’s mind depends upon anything in the sensory realm it will have no solid foundation in any reality.
