Contemplation: Casting Away Evils

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:

Now I wish that in the Ten Directions, all sentient beings hear the sound of the Shakujo; that lazy people become diligent; that people who break the precepts keep the precepts; that non-believers obtain their belief; that stingy people donate to charity; that people with anger express compassion; that ignorant people obtain wisdom; that arrogant people generate respectfulness; that idle people arise concentration of the mind.  All of these people should practice ten thousand times, bearing witness to enlightenment promptly.

from Kujo Shakujo, as practiced at Tendai Buddhist Institute.
