Contemplation: The lightning, the shade, the dew

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:
All things are without entity, transient, like the moon in water, the lightning, the shade, the dew.  The Buddha teaches people, "Words fail to express the Dharma."  Thus, I place my faith in Amitabha Buddha.
from the Five Mindful Gates (Gonemnon), as recited at Tendai Buddhist Institute
