“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

On the 45th anniversary of his demise, gratitude for my teacher's teacher, Sayagi U Ba Khin.

His effort has made a tremendous impact on the understanding of Buddha's teaching.
Especially the insight meditation movement.
