It seems that the mountain spring wind Has begun to blow - On the peaks and in the valleys, Myriad flowers are shining.
Trusting WordPress to have done its sums right, this marks the 2000th post of this blog. It seems appropriate to have Dogen mark the occasion with one of the waka poems from the book compiled by Shohaku Okumura a few years ago, which I was lucky enough to be able to buy when he visited Tassajara to speak about the poems when the book was released.
As I have said before, compiling this blog is good practice for me, encouraging me to read widely. It feels great to share meaningful pieces every day, and little snippets about my life sometimes, and I hope it is beneficial for you as well. Thanks for being a part of this creation over the past five and a half years. I think I will keep going…
One thought on “Dogen”
Congratulations on posting 2000 words of inspiration and instruction. I love reading and rereading these wisdom gems. Commenting is lots of fun too.
