    Sun sets, bell sounds, the mist.
    Headwind on the road, the going hard.
    Evening Sun at Cold Mountain.
    Horses tread men's shadows.

    Oh lets just let it go
    Here I am, there you are
    One moment falls into the next
    one moment.
    Just let it flow man
    The Dude abides.

    PRECONCEPTIONS
    by Milarepa


    Just as fog is dispelled by the strength of the sun
    and is dispelled no other way,
    preconception is cleared by the strength of realization.
    Experience them as baseless dreams.
    Experience them as ephemeral bubbles.
    Experience them as insubstantial rainbows.
    Experience them as indivisible space


    Gassho,

    Talking about food wonít fill your stomach.
    Talk about clothing wonít keep out cold.
    To be full, eat rice.
    To stay warm, wear clothes.
    Those who donít understand
    complain itís hard to get help from Buddha.
    Look inside your heart. Thatís where Buddha is.
    Donít look for him outside.

    For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen.

    To see a World in a Grain of Sand
    And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
    Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
    And Eternity in an hour.

    One Art
    BY ELIZABETH BISHOP
    The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
    so many things seem filled with the intent
    to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

    Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
    of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
    The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

    Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
    places, and names, and where it was you meant
    to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

    I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or
    next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
    The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

    I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
    some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
    I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster.

    —Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
    I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident
    the art of losing’s not too hard to master
    though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

    Please forgive any mistake in my writing. Like in Zen, in English I am only a beginner.
