Osesshin opening and closing teisho poems; September at Tahoma

Teisho was 5 days of the last of the Yasen Kanna teishos, which have been expounded on for the past year, and 2 days of the beginning of the Blue Cliff Records. 

All sentient beings possess Buddha Mind;
Seeing Truth and attaining the Way--
who can do this but you?
Forget the merit of sitting formal zazen!
What Venerable Master Hakuin says
is truly profound. 

One week replete with all-encompassing talks!
When all is said and done.
Zen is vast emptiness with nothing holy;
North, east, south, west, it goes wherever you point.
Free and unobstructed, it fills the autumn sky.
