Embraced and not forsaken

EMBRACED AND NOT FORSAKEN

攝 取 不 捨

Embraced and not forsaken

Fishes are sustained
Embraced by water
My body and all material things
Are embraced by space.
My wretched mind
Transcends physical matter
Embraced and not forsaken
By Amida Buddha’s grace.

The one-thought moment
Of True Entrusting
Arises when I have Truly Heard
Amida’s Primal Vow.
Boundless Light of Compassion
Embrace without exception
All foolish mundane persons
Here and Now.
