Daily Zen

Daily Zen: Friday September 26, 2008

Where he lives is indeed most
Elegantly secluded,
And the people who live there
Have all attained tranquility.
Dense groves of bamboo line
Both sides of the road,
The clear brook flows by the hut.
How free and relaxed is the monk,
Having abandoned all the worry
And anxiety of the world,
The four meditations unite him
With Suchness so that he regards
Everything as illusory.
- Meng Hao-jan (689-765)

Loved your drawings. I am sorry about your dad. Your tribute to him is a wonderful thing (through your art, words and spending his last days taking care of him.) Thank you for sharing.:)
