      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)



      Deep bows,

      Enkyo

      That was truly wonderful, Jundo!


      @Shokai:
      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

      I think it has to do with building our Zendo on the air route between two military bases. A good re-minder of war and peace.
