Tending to the Garden of the Mind (May 5)

As we enter the warm, sunny months when gardens flourish and require daily attention, Rev. Adams will offer reflections on the following wise saying of Rennyo Shonin, which reminds us of the benefits we receive from tending to the seeds of truth planted in our minds by the Buddha’s teachings.

Care is taken in the ways of the world, Care is taken in the ways of the dharma – A couplet cited by Rennyo. He also said, Cultivate the buddhadharma, tend to the culture of the garden trees.

*Dharma the truth taught by the Buddha

(Rennyo Shonin Goichidaiki-kikigaki,The Sayings of Rennyo Shonin  translated by Elson Snow, 312)
