Bodhisattva with the Sword of Discriminating Wisdom
perception of truth is not for all minds
are the qualities which force its exclusion:
greed, ignorance, pride,
in sensation, love of the past, fear for the future,
at the present, the inability to see clearly
are the qualities which bring it nearer:
joy in change, love of the many
action, individual growth, acceptance of new ideas
ability to understand potential
are the qualities when truth is here:
of all form as having equal reality
vision over long distances,
of all things and non-things.
in what is.
my sword I strike down those who presume to travel
places forbidden to them
decide the worthiness of an adept, the talent of a master
distance both may travel
book records the karma of each whose deeds
the world which they shall inhabit
guard the door to Truth unending
mercy nor power shall move me from my decisions
wear the robes of judge and jury
the abyss I hold my golden ladder to aid the worthy
the unworthy who try to cross
only shifting sands within their grasp.
- I am
blue and gold and also white I bend neither to the right nor the left
you wish to ascend to truth, then you must do these:

the many chains which bind you, hold you like an anchor

understanding, great in the wisdom of many worlds
these do I allow to pass
they may have wisdom to trade
dramas, no mantras, no striving will I let by me
who are ready shall pass

their true natures come to the surface
was I not chosen?
who wish to ascend follow the path
the cave of loneliness, in the mountains of the self
when you have found the Hidden
to me and I shall bless you
point you on your way.
