A thousand eyes see all,
A thousand ears hear all,
A thousand hands help and support living beings everywhere.

– Venerable Master Hua

In one of Professor Martin Verhoeven’s Friday evening lectures, he relates the story of his first Practice Retreat experience and his reaction to the above verse about Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Guan Yin session is a combination of chanting, bowing and silent meditation. Sitting in front of a computer all day, it’s a fire-hose of information, so I find it valuable because it gives me an opportunity to listen to myself and what’s going on inside my head.
