The Universal Door
from the Lotus Sutra
The universal door manifests itself
in the voice of the rolling tide.
Hearing and practicing it, we become a child,
born from the heart of a lotus,
fresh, pure, and happy,
capable of speaking and listening
in accord with the universal door.
With only one drop of the water
from the branch of the willow,
spring returns to the great Earth.
