look

earth hope
 

In all ten

directions of the universe,

there is just one truth. When we see clearly,

all great teachings are the same. What can ever be lost?

What can be gained?  If we gain something, it was there from

the beginning of time.  If we lose something, it is hiding

somewhere near us. Look: this ball in my pocket:

Can you see how priceless

it is?
