Now Playing Tracks

Traveller, the road is only
your footprint, and no more;
traveller, there’s no road,
the road is your travelling.

Going becomes the road
and if you look back
you will see a path
none can tread again.

Traveller, every track
leaves its wake on the sea…

Once in this place
where bushes now have thorns
the sound of a poet’s cry was heard

'Traveller there's no road
the road is your travelling…’

translated by A. S. Kline

Compassion is a practically acquired knowledge, like dancing.
You must do it and practice diligently day by day.

He who experiences the unity of life sees his own Self in all beings,
and all beings in his own Self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye.
