"Deanna & Teri:Dang! Those are great poems. I'm afraid my boozy translation of Cén Shēn might seem a bit shallow compared to those two gems."

"Drought I dreamed that it rained, slopping, splashing. I dreamed that my neighbor did not look scared when she peeked out her door when I knocked. I dreamed the mockingbird sang every sort of song, and singing, woke me."

Thanks, Gary.. hopefully there will a sense of renewal and freshness in the minds, a clean-up and setting one's house in order, removals of cobwebs, fresh coats of lime paint, and lots of light... right now, we have a strange smog coming all the way from Delhi, it seems it's there to stay. By the accounts of my friends in Delhi, the fireworks there were a full-blown battlefield!

Happy Diwali to all corner friends!

... and diwali mubarak floren…

Against the Stream

Rikki Gunton

A film portrait of dharma teacher Josh Korda


In this short film, Josh Korda recounts his journey from young substance-abuser to meditation teacher at Dharma Punx NYC. If we can learn, Korda says, to appreciate the ephemeral nature of everything we have, we'll never feel like there's anything missing from life.

Rikki Gunton is a photographer, nonfiction filmmaker, and yoga teacher living in New York City.

A Pilgrimage Among Friends

Gail Gutradt

Three old buddies encounter the sacred at Kumbh Mela, the largest human gathering in the world.

Chances are you have never heard of the Kumbh Mela. Any coverage of the event on Western television is usually given short shrift, the name translated with a shrug as “The Festival of the Pot.” A crowd shot, and some mention of how many people attended, given in millions. Indians themselves record the numbers in lakh or chror—for in a country of over a billion people isn't it more useful to count in multiples of a hundred thousand or ten million? On the television screen you might see ten seconds of local color: hoards of Naga Babas, warrior ascetics with streaming dreadlocks, storming into the waters clad only in marigolds and ashes. And you think, "How exotic!" but you can have no notion of the event itself.

The Chimera of Human Advancement

Kodo Sawaki, Kosho Uchiyama, and Shohaku Okumura

Three Soto Zen masters discuss the mistaking of technological progress for human transformation.

In The Zen Teachings of Homeless Kodo, three generations of dharma teachers grapple with the social and technological changes they witnessed in Japan over the course of their respective lifetimes. Kodo Sawaki, the eponymous "Homeless Kodo," first brought Soto Zen Buddhism out of the monasteries and into the streets during the early 1900s. His dharma heir, Kosho Uchiyama, continued this tradition during the latter half of that century. Now Shohaku Okamura, the title's translator and last commentator, applies the wisdom of his forebears to our present day.—Ed.

Kodo Sawaki:

After all our efforts, racking our brains as intensely as possible, we have come to a deadlock. Human beings are idiots. We set ourselves up as wise and then do foolish things.

In spite of our scientific advancement, we haven’t yet achieved greatness of character. What’s the reason for this?
