Samu Sesshin Completed

Deep thanks to our Zen master Shodo Harada Roshi as well as to a most beautiful sangha. Practising for a week together deepening of mind and opening of heart. The teishos on the Mumonkan being our reminding guiding light.

Opening Poem

One finger like a fool – zen for humanity
I am the only one – pointing to life´s source beyond form
Sitting on the cushion – right there the truth of the Buddha
When all is cut away, the truth of human becomes clarified

Closing Poem

The Oak tree in the garden, true mind is true mind
Right there activity and nature have become one
the workings of a gang of thieves – all Buddhist treasures taken
Coming from the East with no purpose
yet filling the whole universe

Thanks to our Roshi and to Werner our samu coordinator

A happy end !
