This world completely lacks essence;
It trembles in all directions.
I longed to find myself a place
Unscathed — but I could not see it.
Our heart's natural longing unites us with the suffering people of Japan. May we together, through our practice and generosity, find happiness and peace.
Later Note: The Jizo Chronicles has links to a variety of ways to support the people of Japan. Thank you, Maia!
