Wake Up! – Vajra Songs from retreat

00000img_00000_burst20190615095230281_cover.jpg

The rooster says, “wake up”

But so does your pain.

 

“Wake up” says the rooster,

But so does your pleasure.

 

“Wake up” says the rooster,

As does your anger.

 

“Wake Up” says the rooster,

As does your happiness.

 

The rooster says, “wake up”

But so do the trees & the bees,

the sun and the moon, the clouds & the sky.

 

Maybe you already know,

But this is an all-inclusive retreat.

 

Let life be our retreat;

Let every experience wake us up.

 

Opening into infinite bodhicitta

Compassion spontaneously dawns.

 

Rest in the unceasing display &

See the truth of all there will ever be.

 

I bow down to the Victorious Ones.

I bow down to the Universe & its

Inhabitants.

 

May all beings exhaust the delusion

that has never been there to begin with.
