Breath of Life
After a long and cold Winter, Spring is such a wonderful time of the year. Everywhere we look, we can see the lifeforce of the heart of Mahavairocana. The plants and trees are awakened by this great lifeforce that renews our committment to life. Blossoms are everywhere and fruit is plentiful. Our heart soars when we see the Cherry Blossoms. Life is not simply surviving, it is beauty, hope and faith to sustain our awakening.
