Meditation - Ten Ox Herding - Part 7

Meditation - Ten Ox Herding - Part 7

Meditation - Ten Ox Herding - Part 7 - Art Print / Framed Print.

Sitting the quiet of the night, you calm the mind and meditate. Thinking about nothing specific, merely letting thoughts arrive, and then slip across the mind. Beyond the limitations of time and space, you are now on the path to a state of pure energy. A path that has been travelled by all past masters.

About the Ten Ox Herding project

This project is a collaboration with my friend Shinji Asai. It is a surfer's search of the true nature of the mind, based on the story from "Ten Ox Herding".

Ten Bulls or Ten Ox Herding is a series of short poems and accompanying drawings used in the Zen tradition to describe the stages of a practitioner's progress toward enlightenment and her or his return to society to enact wisdom and compassion.

Shinji wrote the story in Japanese for each step:

忘牛存人
静けさに抱かれ 心を鎮める
浮かんでは消える思い そのままに
深く 更に深く 意識の深層を辿っていく
時間も空間も超えた 静かなる世界
祖師たちも流浪した 全てに創造の源へ


and Tim Crowe translated it into English:

"Sitting in the quiet of the night, calming the mind and meditating. Thinking of nothing in particular, merely letting thoughts come and go. Free, you head towards a state of pure energy, on the very same journey that all past masters have travelled."

The Kanji and stamp is made by Shinji's brother Junichi Asai.
