Silent Sunday …. and the best unsaid!

May 27, 2012

I am a Buddhist (amongst other things).  I tend not to talk much about this because some people and I included have preconceived about how such people should and shouldn’t behave.  I don’t usually match up to expectations; so I prefer not to embarrass myself or others.  So it is best kept quiet.

A question usually asked, after a stony silence,  when I say I meditate
is  ‘What is that and how it feel?’ This is very difficult to answer; might be compared with telling a blind person about a banana ! So best left unsaid.

So after a busy and wonderful Saturday I spent this morning with pen, paper and a poem

‘In the beginning I took my master for my master,
In the middle, I took the scriptures for my master,
In the end, I tool my mind for my master.


PS While the poem is not mine the attempt at calligraphy is
