You describe it in vain, you picture it unavailingly;
Praising it is useless, stop trying to perceive it.
There is nowhere to hide your true self;
When the universe is annihilated, this remains, indestructable.
- Mumon (1183 - 1260), capping verse to Case 23 of The Gateless Gate
A good Sunday to drive up to Chattanooga. As an added bonus, I was accompanied by Burt, one of the regular participants of Monday Night Zazen.
