Transition

The round moon of wisdom reflects the myriad waves;
the great boat of compassion carries all across.
Looking at the moon, the ground drops away;
tracing the moon one embodies authentic light.

This poem comes from a version of a ceremony performed to mark a person’s transition from life to death.
