The Utterly Visionary Quality of Love

Book coverLove is very noble, elegant, beautiful, resourceful and utterly visionary. Being utterly visionary has a touch of humor and a lot of fearlessness. It is the foundation of mahayana. You are willing to jump in, and you are entirely free from panic. You have long-lasting vision and effort. Bodhisattvas, mahayana practitioners committed to helping others, are known as warriors because they are visionary. They are not confused, and they do not shy away from others.

From “Love, Vision, and Warriorship” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume Two, pages 18-19.
