    Dear Shinkai,

    Your stuff is really inspiring. Very humbling.

    Allow me to share a few words from last retreat:

    my mantra, just being
    my deity, the ordinary
    my practice, wonder


    gassho

    Re: Gathas

    Thank you for posting it Taigu. It wise very mind opening to hear it during our retreat and I was going to ask you to write it down for all of us

    And thank you Shinkai for all those gathas. They are wonderful. A pity I didn't find this thread before...

    Re: Gathas

    I have been reading Dhammapada and came across the following, which made me think of this thread:

    "Even though a Gatha be a thousand of words, but made up of senseless words, one word of a Gatha is better, which if a man hears, he becomes quiet."

    And

    "Though a man recite a hundred gathas made up of senseless words,one word of the law is better, which if a man hears, he becomes quiet."

    So this made me wonder ... what if you hear a hundred gathas of a thousand words and become quiet...as I've done here. :lol:

    Thank you for this thread...

    wow, these are great. I've never tried to write gatha before.

    This one came the mind as I read:

    Cheeks burning from hasty words
    I vow with all beings
    to remember that those who challenge us most
    are our greatest teachers

    Thank you, Dadio. As someone who spends too much time in his head, this is a welcome reminder.

    Deep bows and the silence of listening, openness and compassion. Words would be clutter.
