Sit-a-Long with Taigu: The Ten Oxherding Pictures (VIII)

| No Comments

Rev. Taigu again take the reigns to lead us through the next of the Ten Oxherding PicturesHe writes:

"Taming the bull is the story of discipline. One has to take the lead and establish a regular and steady practice. That is, at least, the traditional reading of this image. I would like to come forward with something very different: taming the bull can also be giving a specific direction to sitting, having goals and aims, and therefore we loose the original freedom of practice trying to make it fit our plans."
