The vast wisdom bliss of Buddha manifests in forms of sensual beauty, light and sound. These images and mantras cause a sympathetic resonance in the mind drawing you toward wisdom-bliss. This is the compassionate action of the Buddhas.
Devotion is the natural love response to what is most beautiful. If a tuning fork pitched to middle C is tapped it will resonate with the single note. If it is brought close to another tuning fork not tapped, not resonating, the untapped one will begin to resonate as well. This is called sympathetic resonance. Devotion is the resonance in feeling to what is divine.
Silence is like a deep ocean undisturbed by any event. Silence lives in and as the silent mind. Love is like the vast open sky embracing all appearances impartially. Love lives as the awakened heart. Love and Silence are the stronghold of the realized one and the inheritance of every being.
The mind is universal but if it is limited to the small size of the body then how can it function properly? Sense of body is also universal – all life a single body, this is the natural feeling of reality. But if limited to a single “body-self” how can compassion blossom? It is a question of coming to know who you truly are.
