Vajrasadhu's Song Of Introduction - Poem by Douglas Penick
Suffering is an endless chain of cause and effect.
Liberation is spontaneous, awake.
Because the awakened state is the natural state,
There is no separation or non-separation.
Because wisdom is spontaneous presence,
There is no obstruction or absence of obstruction.
Because compassion is the natural way of acting,
There is no hesitation and no certainty.
Surrender completely to the world of phenomena:
Love is the gateway and the offering.
This is the light of freedom.
