Zazen on Ching-t'ing Mountain

The birds have vanished down the sky.
Now the last cloud drains away.

We sit together, the mountain and me,
until only the mountain remains.

--Li Po

translated by Sam Hamill

On this Wintery Day, may the blessings of wisdom and compassion light your way, and may the promise of a New Year gladden your heart!
