VAJRA BODHI SEA
February 1979, Mahayana 3004
Volume IX - Series 21 - NO.105
Pe Ye Mwo Nwo
The Vajra pestle grinds to bits all the hordes of demons. Lotus Flower counting-beads remind one of the Buddhas. Thunder claps shock awake those stupid and confused. Aroused from dreams they come back home where one word is too many.
