    from all notion of wins and losses

    Living their lives in cracks and bushes and signs.

    Deep gassho to you Shinkai, that's a wonderful gatha I know I will be using frequently! Hopefully less and less frequently as I pick up on the original meal gatha.

    Dear Senseis and Sangha,

    It is not exactly a Gatha, but it has been very useful to my practice. The main chant of the Ordinary Mind Zen School, as it was taught by Joko Beck teacher:

    Caught in a self-centered dream,
    only suffering.
    Holding to self-centered thoughts,
    exactly the dream .
    Each moment, life as it is,
    the only teacher.
    Being just this moment,
    compassion's way.
