Even though
You may be at some unnoticeable place on the earth
You can let your mind soar
And think of the world.

Even though
You may be immobilized
You can extend your thoughts
And deliver your words.

Even though
You may have no ability that you can be proud of
With the candle light of Bodaishin
You can illuminate one small spot.

Seeking for light incessantly
Producing light incessantly
That is
The exercise of the mind of Bodhisattva.
