Yes, it refers to the inter-connected nature of reality as a metaphor.
At each intersection of threads there is a gem which is mirror-like. The idea is that if you blemish one, it reflects in all of them. Likewise if you clear away the blemish on one, the whole of the net is all the more brilliant.

Uhu wrote:Hi, Indrajala. I'm a new member in this forum, but an old visitor/follower. Your report is very interesting! Where did you ordain? I mean: vehicle, tradition, country, monastery. One member at DhammaWheel.Com mentioned that seems that you have ordained somewhat independently. Is that true? Is that possible? Thanks a lot! All the best! _/\_

(for example, like how to properly draw up loan contracts with laypeople which is actually attributed to the Buddha who lived in a time with no writing!).
