You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere

Buddha is your mind
And the Way goes nowhere.
Don’t look for anything but this.
If you point your cart north
When you want to go south,
How will you arrive?

—Ryokan (1758–1831), Japanese Zen Buddhist monk.

Sun Buddha

Moon Buddha

No Buddha

None.

—Korin Shodo (b.1954), American Zen priest
