Daily Dharma: Clouds of Great Compassion

Today's Daily Dharma from Tricycle:

Clouds of Great Compassion

The supreme water spirit Ocean
Covers the earth with clouds;
The rain in each place is different
But the spirit has no thought of distinction.
Likewise Buddha, sovereign of truth,
Extends clouds of great compassion in all directions,
Raining differently for each practitioner,
Yet without discriminating among them.

- The Flower Ornament Scripture, trans. by Thomas Cleary; from Everyday Mind, a Tricycle book edited by Jean Smith.
