Yamaoka Tesshu





Namaste world, and greetings 2013.  I sincerely hope that every reader enjoyed their Christmas and New Year celebrations.   Tonight I am delighted and honoured to have received permission from a bright, ten year old philosopher named Nicholas, to feature his illustrated rendition of a story from the Zen tradition.

I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do. Thank you Nicholas.

At The Centre of My Being!

This was inspired by the concept of the violet flame. A good portal for meditation.  It is intended to complement my most recent post, (Zen, and The Cosmic Crystal Monad.) Thanks to NASA for the background.  Click on the pic for a big view, and please enjoy.
