五观

五观
The five meditations referred to in the <Lotus Sutra> 25:
(1) 真 on the true, idem 空觀, to meditate on the reality of the void or infinite, in order to be rid of illusion in views and thoughts;
(2) 淸淨觀 on purity, to be rid of any remains of impurity connected with the temporal, idem 假觀;
(3) 廣大智慧觀 on the wider and greater wisdom, idem 中觀, by study of the 'middle' way;
(4) 悲觀 on pitifulness, or the pitiable condition of the living, and by the above three to meditate on their salvation;
(5) 慈觀 on mercy and the extension of the first three meditations to the carrying of joy to all the living.
