‘In front of the Patriarch’s room
The road is smooth
A thousand years pass in vain
Shines like snow
The Second PatriarchJakushitsu Genkō
His arm severed
Still hasn’t arrived.’
On our Twitter account, Buddhism Now @Buddhism_Now, most mornings we post a ‘morning meditation’ like the one above.
On the net, of course, it’s morning, afternoon, evening, or nighttime 😀 somewhere.
