Poems

happy birthday, buddha

silent buddha, rooted in your stillness,
your mind-like empty, cloudless skies
no thought can enter 
yet the whole world abides.

Today is the Buddha’s birthday, and also the day he left his body, on his 80th birthday.

Which shows his incredible sense of discipline😃

A little poem today for this great man, who laid the path to our liberation from all suffering. … except tooth aches.

May we all reside in boundless buddha mind.🙏
