The New Year Comes and Finds Its Seat

A poem by Zen Master Seung Sahn:

The New Year asks the dog,
"Do you know the New Year?"

"Woof! Woof! Woof!''
The dog only understands woof New Year.

Next, the New Year asks the cat,
"Do you understand the New Year?"

"Meow. Meow. Meow.''
The cat only understands meow New Year.

Happy Bodhi Day!

Yes, I'm a day early, but who can contain the excitement? Anyway, I thought this article was interesting, particularly this quote:

"'Our purpose is not to make a religious factory, but to give people the technology to live a good life,' he said."
