Though he practices concentration and insight as methods to aid one to the way, in the end he does not sink into tranquil extinction--such is the practice of the bodhisattva. Though fully aware that all things are without birth or extinction, he adorns his body with auspicious features--such is the practice of the bodhisattva.
Vimalakirti Sutra, p. 74
Programming Note: There will be no contemplation posted next week, as I will be out of town and away from the computer. Continue with this one until I return.
