Robert Aitken

When I sit with my friends in zazen
I vow with all beings
to touch and receive and convey
the mind of rivers and stars.

(from The Dragon Who Never Sleeps)

I have enjoyed a couple of Robert Aitken’s gathas before, and it was nice to find a whole book of them. Look out for another one next week!
