Contemplation: Tathagata's Chamber, Robe, and Seat

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:
If people want to expound this Sutra,
They should enter the Tathagata's chamber,
Put on the Tathagata's garments
And sit on the Tathagata's seat.
They then should face the people without fear,
So that they may extensively
Illuminate and explain it to the assembly.
The Tathagata's chamber is great compassion,
His garments are gentleness and perseverence,
And his seat is the emptiness of all existent things.
from Lotus Sutra, Chapter 10, as chanted at the Tendai Buddhist Institute
