The Language of Ritual

Following on from last Monday’s post, another line from the shukke tokudo ceremony that always resonated with me and comforted me is the preceptor’s comment after the recitation of the three refuges (taking refuge in Buddha, dharma and sangha):

‘This is the path of mercy for all existence and things’.

How does the line make you feel?
