Bodhidasa's picture

Such a beautiful and inspiring Buddha Land created in that space. I cannot wait to be sit there again in the presence of that light. It speaks to me of Rilke’s famous poem…

Center of all centers, core of cores,
almond self-enclosed, and growing sweet–
all this universe, to the furthest stars
all beyond them, is your flesh, your fruit.

Now you feel how nothing clings to you;
your vast shell reaches into endless space,
and there the rich, thick fluids rise and flow.
Illuminated in your infinite peace,

a billion stars go spinning through the night,
blazing high above your head.
But in you is the presence that
will be, when all the stars are dead. 

Rainer Maria Rilke
