a letter

Thank you again for sharing
works of a noble search.

Please know…
that sympathetically joy,
resonates with the deep search
demonstrated here, and now…

beyond certainty, uncertainty…
the function of reconciliation…
beyond correction, beyond defilement…
beyond organizing, beyond disorganizing…

this searching is not self,
a beautiful search.

noble,
just,
calm,
generous,
loving,
compassionate…
peaceful,
gracious…

courageous….
courageous <is|in> fudoshin.

A fudoshin not held in a zoo cage,
nor held on high on a throne.

Nor a fudoshin honored and revered,
nor a fudoshin disdained and reviled,
nor a fudoshin heaped on precious pearls,
nor a fudoshin discarded in cheap refuse,
nor a fudoshin on lofty lotus,
nor a fudoshin below fish excrement.

beyond…

This is fudoshin, and even that,
yet having gone, is slightly off approach,
because the axis changes, and now…
having grasped the spears of superliminality,
it is let go as quickly as it came,
for there is no more enemy, and
no more friend…

this is the sacred heart mantra…
the peaceful mantra…
the one that subdues all unity and division…

and that spiritual friend,
that purified function of bodhicitta,
that guide, guru, heruka unfathomable is

tathagatha

for this, like god,
<can|not> be named,
superpositioned…
superlinear… and now,
announced,
superliminal…

mind

and yet, beyond.
and yet, beyond.
and yet, beyond.

no distraction,
no teaching,
no correction,
no blessing,
no fear,
no grief,
no anguish,
no sickness,
no old age,
no suffering,
no death.

far beyond perverted views,
one dwells in nibbana.
oh builder of this
house… ashes
eyes
opened

and yet beyond…
bhumi… the rain of…
wisdom
falls…

delusion perfected,
samsara… is exactly…
wisdom perfected,
nibbana.

beyond intersection,
beyond parallel and perpendicular,
waves, on the sea, of tranquility
[to]base[d]
the
eagle
has…
landed.
