    Ah Shokai! Of course there is one more Gate.

    In honor of your birthday tomorrow, I figured one more verse was in order:

    Not to be wasted
    So precious
    Is this human birth

    This gift from nowhere
    Tikkun olam
    Raindrops drip from ashoka branches,
    Feeding the Lotus stream.

    Happiest of birthdays, Jindo Shokai.

    Open to Life in a benevolent way,
    He attains the Way Supreme,
    An astronaut beyond time, space, life and death.


    Have a wonderful birthday!
