he has left this realm

Further to my last post
Zen master John Daido Loori Roshi has died
and Bernie Glassman wrote this commemorative poem:


Deep within wild flowers,
Partridges cry out.
Tears like falling petals
Blow in the Wind.
Eternally and Everlastingly,
It is Revealing Itself.

Above the Bare Branches,
Whistling at the Moon, Playing in the Clouds,
The Golden Phoenix Soars hand in hand with
Dharma Brother Daido.

  1. Ah – seems to soon! Such a brief visit. We had just met this past spring through his work “The Zen of Creativity: Cultivating Your Artistic Life.”

    Allow John Daido Loori words to be my question…

    “What chance does a rational justification have against the beauty and mystery of our lives?” (p.193)
