touching with her ears..

There is a Boddhisattva,

whose name is Avalokitesvara.

It means:

Listening deeply to the sound of the cries of the world“.

And listening deeply is the practice of mindfullness.

But if you are full of pain, full of anxiety, full of projections,

and especially full of prejudices, full of ideas and notions,

it may be very difficult for you to practice deep listening.

You are too full.

And that is why to practice in order for you to have space,

to have freedom within,

to have some joy within is very important for deep listening.

Avalokitesvara, Quan Yin, she practices deep listening to herself, and to the world, outside.

She practices touching with her ears.
