Danica Shoan Ankele, Senior Monastic and Dharma Holder

Zen Mountain Monastery, Mt Tremper, New York, Saturday 07/15/2023

Dharma Holder Shoan shares a poem by 14th Century Kashmiri mystic Lalleshwari about “coming home” and asks where do you find yourself in relation to “seeking”, “home leaving”, “longing”? These activities may seem to imply the need to find, to get somewhere, to be finally satisfied. Yet the non-dual wisdom of Lalleshwari tells us that she’s at home when “the truthful one finds me”. Lalleshwari seems to say the same thing as Master Dogen: “To carry the self forward and realize the ten thousand dharmas is delusion. That the ten thousand dharmas advance and realize the self is enlightenment.”
