From a Dharma talk by Thich Nhat Hanh

Wakeup

“sitting in the Zen-dō and smiling is a revolutionary act

[…]

smiling means having sovereignty over yourself

[…]

[gatha]
Body, speech, and mind in perfect oneness.
I send my heart along with the sound of the bell.
May the hearers awaken from forgetfulness and transcend all anxiety and sorrow.

[…]

the sound of the bell is like the cool voice of the buddha
calling us back to our true self.
And not a buddha outside of yourself;
your own buddha, your own buddha nature”
