कदलीव फलं विहाय याति
क्षयमन्यत् कुशलं हि सर्वमेव ।
सततं फलति क्षयं न याति
प्रसवत्येव तु बोधिचित्तवृक्षः ।। १२ ।।

Every other favorable occasion surely decays like the plantain tree, but the tree of the thought of enlightenment never decays, it always fruits and multiplies.

This fire is heartbreaking.  The communities of Española, Ohkay Owingeh, Santa Clara, and Nambé are filled with smoke.

This my friends, is America from the air!

What looks like the surface of a celestial body is actually Shiprock, New Mexico.

New Mexico is just one of the states our aerial crew is filming this year.

Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling the potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.

Leaving Mt. Baldy

I come down from the mountain

after many years of study

and rigorous practice.

I left my robes hanging on a peg

in the old cabin

where I had sat so long

and slept so little.

I finally understood

I had no gift

for Spiritual Matters.

"Thank you Beloved,"

I heard a heart cry out

as I entered the stream of cars

on the Santa Monica Freeway,

westbound for L.A.

A number of people

(some of them practitioners)

have begun to ask me angry questions

about the Ultimate Reality.

I suppose they don’t like to see

old Jikan smoking.
