Oh great Maha!
In emptiness, only obtain for all beings!
Make personal vows.

End of the day: I don’t know.

How are you?
I am fine thank you.
And you?
Make personal vows.

Ten words is way
too many words to
express Zen.

Zen isn't a philosophy.
It is beyond words
and intellect.

What is mind?
After seeking kalpas,
Not speck of dirt
Make personal vows.

Every moment
Mind grasps to everything
It constructs duality
Discern!
Make personal vows.

End of the day: I don’t know.
