Buddha is Alive in Our Hearts

Live our lives, with Buddha within ourselves

Be aware that every one of us is Buddha (Tathagata);
Try to live as Buddha while being attentive to Three Mysteries: behavior, words, and mind.
These are the quintessential teachings of Kobo-Daishi.
Being a Buddha means that we live one life through the three temporal worlds of
past, present and future.
Because they continue to live their lives as Buddha,
we always feel the presence of Kobo-Daishi and our ancestors beside us.
Each of us living in the present must live our lives with the Buddha within us.
