I am wholly thankful.
Thank you Jundo.
Incompleteness - Wholeness -
Thank you Jundo. Made me think of a poem I read recently and it seems to fit.
Subhuti recalling a poem by Buddha:
"Whole body like a mouth, hanging in space
Not asking if the wind is east, west, south or north.
For all others it speaks equally, it speaks prajna.
Chin ten ton ryan chin ten ton." ( represents the sound of a windbell)
Thank you Jundo for all you do...
Thank you Jundo, Gassho.
Deep bows to you Jundo, thank you.
Thank you Jundo
btw, that was neat how you scheduled the helicopter fly over,very effective
Thank you, Jundo.
That was truly wonderful, Jundo!
Jundo did not schedule the helicopter to come - he conjured it up! Zen Masters have super powers!
That was my first pick but knowing what a humble zen master we have; I didn't want to blow his cover

Zazen is everything and all times ... sunny and rainy, happy and sad, exciting and full, here and there.
Zazen is only sitting on the Zafu,
It's a nice day here in the UK; blue sky, cool, but not cold. I was sitting outside earlier, facing the early morning sun, my cat on my lap, birds chirping
I remember when he came to visit our community, Flor de Nopal Sangha, here in South Texas. Very good talk. Hoping one of these
