Buddhadharma : Winter 2011
73 WINTER 2 01 1 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY Dedication Thus on this half-moon midafternōōn, at this time that is ōtherwise perfect for nāpping, though we cannot yet see the mōōn in its fūllness, we know it is there, in the shādow, we’re at least pretty sūre it’s thēre— let ’s say we can go to the bānk on its being thēre, somewhēre— Let us, thus, this āfternoon, tolerate the brōken, the irrēgular, the flāwed, the not so swīft, the not nearly quīte all thēre yet, the best guēss, that which we just bārely manage to mūster, the half-āsterisked, through āll world systems, to the unborn nature of all bẽ ı ̃ng . Visit w w w.thebuddhadharma.com to listen to Genine Lentine’s half moon ceremony performed during a skit night at the San Francisco City Center, and to read about her inspiration for writing it. GENINE LENTINE is a poet and author of the chapbooks Mr. Worthington’s Beautiful Experiments on Splashes and Poses: An Essay Drawn from the Model. She teaches an ongoing Sunday writing workshop at the San Francisco Zen Center, where she was recently artist-in-residence. What ’s coming up for me at the moment around this, in my interāctions with ōthers, is how when my needs aren’t being mēt, and I make a request, and it’s simply not hēārd, instead of just being able to take this up with the pērson, what I’ll usually do is take it ōn and make it my own prōblem, but then I’ll just vent with my pārtner about the whōle thīng. I’m really looking at this clōsely and prācticing with it, seeing, what if I just try āsking for what I nēēd with the person. And then anōther thing I noticed when I lōōked at it is that I’m more likely to praise ōthers at the expense of sēlf. I was telling my friend from outsīde about this but she couldn’t hēar what I was sāying. She doesn’t understand things like Ī do. But then, shē hasn’t been prācticing as long as I hāve. Eight I vow not to be avarīcious. That ’s why if there are only three cōōkies in the smāll kitchen, I figure it isn’t enōūgh for everyone, so I think in sūch a case, īsn’t it bētter if I just hāve them mysēlf so no one ēlse will suffer from wānting them? Nine I’m āll about not harboring ill will, It’s fine, rēālly. It’s not a prōblem. I accēpt it. Some. things. you. just. hāve to. lēt. gō. Ten I vow not to abūse the Three Treasures. Sure, I’m bāsically on board with this one. Abūse sex, I get it. Abūse drugs, okay. But how dō you abuse the Three Treasures? Am I mīssing something? Should I try it once just to knōw what I’m giving up? I’m not totally clēār on what I’m actually vowing to dō or um, not do, but come ōn, I’m all for it. I mean, what I’m all for, is nōt abusing them. It’s the Three Trēasures we’re tālking about! Count me in, I mean, or out, you know, of abūsing them, but for sure, I vow not to abūse The Three Treasures, whatēver that mēāns. TALAMADANI
