     ::: Gathas for the Practice of Mindful Living



1
Waking Up
Waking up this morning, I smile.
Twenty-four brand new hours are before me.
I vow to live fully in each moment
and to look at beings with eyes of compassion.


2
Taking the First Steps of the Day
Walking on the Earth
is a miracle!
Each mindful step 
reveals the wondrous Dharmakaya.


3
Stepping out of Bed
If today I inadvertently step on a small insect,
may it not suffer too much.
May it be liberated.
Homage to the Bodhisattva of the Land of Great Happiness.


4
Opening the Window
Opening the window, I look out onto the Dharmakaya.
How wondrous is life!
Attentive to each moment,
my mind is clear like a calm river.


5
Turning on the Water
Water comes from high mountain sources.
Water runs deep in the Earth.
Miraculously, water comes to us and sustains all life.
My gratitude is filled to the brim.


6
Washing Your Hands
Water flows over these hands.
May I use them skillfully
to preserve our precious planet.


7
Brushing Your Teeth
Brushing my teeth and rinsing my mouth,
I vow to speak purely and lovingly.
When my mouth is fragrant with right speech,
a flower blooms in the garden of my heart.


8
Rinsing Your Mouth
Rinsing my mouth, my heart is cleansed.
The universe is perfumed by flowers.
Actions of body, speech, and mind are calmed.
Hand in hand with the Buddha, I walk in the Pure Land.


9
Using the Toilet
Defiled or immaculate,
increasing or decreasing--
these concepts exist only in our mind.
The reality of interbeing is unsurpassed.


10
Bathing
Unborn and indestructible,
beyond time and space both transmission and inheritance
lie in the wonderful nature of Dharmadhatu.*




11
Looking in the Mirror
Awareness is a mirror
reflecting the four elements.
Beauty is a heart that generates love
and a mind that is open.


12
Washing Your Feet
The peace and joy 
of one toe
is peace and joy
for my whole body.


13
Putting on the Monk's/Nun's Robe
Putting on this monk's/nun's robe,
my heart is at ease.
I live a life of freedom,
bringing joy to the world.


14
Putting on the Sanghati Robe
How wonderful is the robe of a nun (monk),
a field of precious seeds.
I vow to receive it,
and wear it lifetime after lifetime.


15
Entering the Meditation Hall
Entering the meditation hall, 
I see my true self.
As I sit down,
I vow to cut off all disturbances.


16
Sitting Down
Sitting here 
is like sitting under a Bodhi tree.
My body is mindfulness itself,
free from all distraction.


17
Finding a Stable Posture
In the lotus posture,
the human flower blooms.
The udumbara flower is here,
offering its true fragrance.*


18
Calming the Breath
Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment,
I know this is a wonderful moment!


19
Adjusting Posture
Feelings come and go
like clouds in a windy sky.
Conscious breathing 
is my anchor.


20
Greeting Someone
A lotus for you
a Buddha to be.
