Image result for buddhist mirrorThe eye cannot see itself […], but bring forth a mirror, and the eye will see itself. This is none other than the power of the mirror.

This mirror is called “great, perfect mirror wisdom,” which sentient beings possess originally. It is the Name that all Buddhas have themselves realized.

In the mirror of the Name, we can see our original face.
