Bodhisattvas of Great Strength…

Posted on

 During the short aeons of swords,

 They meditate on love,

 Introducing to nonviolence

 Hundreds of millions of living beings.

 In the middle of great battles

 They remain impartial to both sides;

 For bodhisattvas of great strength

 Delight in reconciliation of conflict.

 In order to help the living beings,

 They voluntarily descend into

 The hells which are attached

 To all the inconceivable buddha-fields.

—Vimalakirti Sutra
