Take Refuge

Take refuge in the mountain under Heaven’s gaze

The Path before you harkens, neath luminous Sun days.

Face turned to yonder peak, resolute you stand.

Feet on Alabaster Path, you are a grain of sand.

mountain lake heaven

Dust on wind you dance; blessed by Buddha light

Fly towards the mountain, fly with all your might.

Nothing can be taken, leave it all behind

Resolute to mountain striding, the call within resides.

mountain lake heaven

Answering the aeons, face all winter storms

Sun upon the mountain, as the New Day dawns.

Everywhere in all ways, Mystery seeks itself

Forever and for all, for all and evermore.

mountain lake heaven

Facing all illusions, nothing as it seems,

Anchored in the Heart of One indivisible Stream.

Alabaster Path it beckons, called to distant peak,

Hasten ere the shadows lengthen, to the Masters feet.
