The Mahasattva

Beholden to neither

Form nor void,

They manifest

As maidens

And devas,

And brahmins

And crones.

Having gone

Beyond to suchness,

They arrive

As such.

The One

Whose love

Provides refuge,

Gives solace,

And brings ease.

And whose power,

Shatters swords,

Shakes the Earth,

And chokes hellfire.

The Lord who looks

Upon the world.

The Goddess

Who hears our cries.

The Mahasattva

Who brings the many

To the Other Shore

of Sukhavati.

To you I bow low.
