Clouds: Like waves, a manifestation of water



Unborn and indestructible,

beyond time and space--

both transmission and inheritance

lie in the wonderful nature of the Dharmadhatu


"... The Dharmadhatu is all that is manifested from the Dharmakaya, having Dharmakaya as its essence, just as all waves are manifestations of water.  The Dharmadhatu is neither born nor destroyed.  It has no previous existence.  Its existence is beyond time and space.  When we understand this truth of existence with our whole being, we will begin to transcend the fear of death, and we will not be disturbed by unnecessary discrimination.

(from Present Moment, Wonderful Moment:  Mindfulness Verses for Daily Living, by Thich Nhat Hanh, 1990)
