The connection to your higherSELF is much clearer when you are a child. Too often their visions are discounted as “make-believe”, or “story-telling”. But if you could see, what they see…then it is truly Amazing!!!
I met these Wonderful Happy Smiling Bodhisattvas during a three-week retreat; The Water, Land Dharma Ceremony –it was spectacular!
Each part of the monastery was dedicated to a particular Sutra and/or Mantra. For example, there was a hall that chanted only the Medicine Buddha Sutra, another hall which chanted The Amitabha Sutra, and another that chanted Ti Zhang Wang Pu Sa (Earth Store Bodhisattva) Sutra, and so on and so on. All chanting simultaneously! It was like a living, breathing Thankga!
Me and the Bodhisattvas became instant friends. We told each other stories, played, practiced and meditated. It was the most fun!
Sometime later, someone asked me (I guess after noticing how much fun we were having), “Are you their babysitter?” No. They’re my friends! :0)
