Sample text

Jerusalem has a literal historical meaning. As the center of sacred pres­ ence and worship for three religions, it symbolizes the spiritual realities of the pilgrimage of our lives. As the “heavenly Jerusalem” it represents the goal of the spiritual journey. Origen applied his method to many passages of the Bible. “You must not think,” he said of the stories from the Old Testament, “that all these things happened only in earlier times. 39 In Origen’s imagination she becomes a type or symbol of the Church, a harlot turned virgin.

It recognizes that there are indeed stages of faith in which the symbol of God is understood more maturely. Every believer in God wrestles with idolatry and superstition before coming to the mystery of the divine Other. The Dalai Lama seemed to accept this quite naturally while leaving the question open 19 THE GOOD HEART about, as he called it laughingly in one exchange, the “nature of the Father” which seemed to be causing so much confusion among us. In the same open way, he did not mind using the word God, and the term remained flexible during our discussions.

When the audience laughed, the laughter seem ed partly out o f surprise at the lack o f self-importance in the man an d also a gesture o f friendly encouragement. It was the beginning o f a rapport that, in the next fe w days, w ould lead to a climax o f shared feelin g an d thought in an atmosphere o f respect an d love. The lights in the hall were turned out, and in the soft light com ing only through the windows, the audience collected itself as His Holiness closed his eyes and intoned an ancient Tibetan prayer: Replete with excellence like a mountain of gold, The triple worlds’ saviors, freed from the three taints, Are the buddhas, their eyes like lotuses in bloom; They are the world’s first auspicious blessing.
