The Benevolence of the True Teachers

Such is the benevolence of Amida’s great compassion, That we must strive to return it, even to the breaking of our bodies; Such is the benevolence of the masters and true teachers, That we must endeavor to repay it, even to our bones becoming dust. ♦ Hymns of the Dharma-Ages, 59.
