The texture of life
Appears rough or fine
Fashioned by karmic threads
Through countless time.

Examining the fabric
We will clearly see
Myriad stained emotions
Unstable in harmony.

Our own existence
Despite the hue and cry
Are just dust specks
Against the sky.

Yet, we have been proffered
The diamond-like gift of salvation
A long time ago
By Amida’s grace and compassion.

His Primal Vow
Call of Boundless Compassion
Saves even an evil person like me
In my wretched condition.
