Like the moon in rippling water ~ Chandrakirti

Beings are like the moon in rippling water,
Fitful, fleeting, empty in their nature.
Bodhisattvas see them thus and yearn to set them free.
Their wisdom is beneath compassion’s power.


from the book Introduction to the Middle Way: Chandrakirti's Madhyamakavatara with Commentary by Ju Mipham
