SIT-A-LONG with Taigu: Just a begging bowl

| 1 Comment
Ryokan, the old big useless fool, writer of cheap poetry and wanderer in both worlds, this one and the next, writes:

Violets and dandelions
mixed together
in my beggar's bowl
are offered to all the buddhas
Manifest here, there and everywhere

Broken bowls, begging bowls, that's what we are.
Nothing special, nobody special.
Takuhatsu is the action of going begging in the streets, floating away in this fleeting world, things given and received, but who gives, who receives?
In the light of the sad events of the past few weeks, Let's take a look at this bowl.
