Buddhadharma : Fall 2006
fall 2006| 64 |buddhadharma • Compassion is tenderness of heart You say the Tao is possible without tenderness? With that sort of Tao, what petty larceny do you intend? • To a poor fellow who has no stone-hard horse no cast-iron cow not even a black pig what point would there be in talking about Buddha? • The Passage of Time Long ago on his deathbed the Buddha said: “In days to come when I am no more I beg you, make no images of me.” After that request the people who had lost their master had no choice: the buddha was nowhere else but in their hearts. Everywhere they went, no matter where, he was surely within. But that, it seemed, was not enough. Since he’d become enlightened at Bodhgaya at dawn under a bodhi tree, people took one leaf from that tree offering it reverence bowed down to it joining palms before it. Then one day some artists of Gandhara, inspired by Greece, carved sensuous statues of seated buddhas to which people offered reverence, bowed down, palms joined. • Once you have cracked all 1700 koans there will still be a boat on the water There will still be clouds in the sky • A madhouse is a marvelous place I’m an emperor I’m a major general I’m the UN Secretary General I’m pop singer Park Hun I’m God I’m Miss Korea I’m the movie star Kim Bo-gil One madhouse is annex to another madhouse • What sound can be heard with an ear that has never heard a sick child groan? The wings of autumn dragonflies vibrate soundlessly. • Since Antiquity In a world like ours there’s plenty to do, even for lugworms. As the price for one holy man’s coming thousands of extremely unholy men come along too. I really wonder why the Buddha ever bothered to come.
