Rohatsu Doshi Statement




We vow
To enter each moment
6 and ½ billion moments a day
to die and get birthed
at superspeed
into the moment to moment always, infinitely ever unfolding
mystery of the “Now”

Even blundering around
Even lost in a haze
Even a ½ a person
There is never anything left-over
Or outside the mystery of this creative moment
The pivoting of birth and death,
creation and destruction
right now

“While the seasons come and go,
and the mountains, rivers, and great earth change with time,
 you should know that this is buddha
raising his eyebrows and blinking his eyes”

wholeheartedly we plunge into this moment
we are enveloped in vow
and practice forever together.
