"The Friendly Animals", number 151 of 188 from Robert Aitken's book Miniatures of a Zen Master.
Two days and no movement. This miniature seems a mix of anthropomorphism and a small bird that foretells the future. Seems odd to be in a book presumably about Zen.
Color me hopeful.
Any error or confusion created by my commentary on
Miniatures of a Zen Master
is solely a reflection of my own delusion and ignorance.
Any merit generated by this activity is solely the result of
Aitken Roshi's clear teaching and is dedicated to
all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas throughout space and time.
