The Gate of Universal Light

The Gate of Universal Light

The great light of compassion
illuminates this world
in every part
As a boy
Sudhana stood
before the gates
When your eyelids
have fallen across
the whole of the empty world
the gate will open
at the snap of a finger
as it did then to let him pass
