Mantra

Gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi swāhā


Translation

Go, go, go beyond, go beyond the beyond, there the true reality, so be it


This mantra is a cryptic and condensed version of the sutra called; Heart of the Perfection Wisdom, which itself is a summary of the longer work known as the Perfection of Wisdom. Therefore, this mantra is the third-level distillation of the teaching of True Reality, or Bodhi.

Not to Hurt...

Not to hurt our humble brethren (the animals) Is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission: To be of service to them whenever they require it. St. Francis of Assisi
