Ordinary Miracle

Danica Shoan Ankele, Senior Monastic and Dharma Holder

Zen Mountain Monastery, Mt Tremper, New York, Sunday 07/09/2023

Shoan looks in wonderment at the image of “two arrows meeting in mid-air”… Our seemingly ordinary experience and activity in everyday life is none other than the great universal self, Buddha Mind. Reflecting on a poem from the medieval Buddhist nun Fayuan, Red Pine’s commentary on the Diamond Sutra, Master Dogen’s Jinzu (Miracles) and Genjokoan (Actualizing the Fundamental Point), the teachings of Kosho Uchiyama, and an essay from Audre Lorde, Shoan expresses it: “May We Realize the Buddha Way Together”.
