Namo Guru Khandro-la,
I bow down to my teacher, endless source of dharma, gut-wrenching wisdom, and boundless bodhicitta.
Looking for instruction and methods to become this wish-fulfilling jewel for the world, I jumped off the cliff.
I looked and saw a river there, a river flowing with blessings of ancient teachings and practices.
Dakinis appeared in all forms and whispered in my ear, "Ellen, you are the one who holds the diamond, after all. It is you. It is everyone."
I heard. I felt. I smelled. I tasted. I touched a glimpse of this truth.
Swimming in the river, I recognize, realize, relax.
Dancing and singing I embody, experience.
Holding the diamond, I polish it and offer it, again and again and again.
