Harmony In Motion - Ten Ox Herding - Part 5 - Art Print / Framed Print.

Extensive practice, on top of practice. Yet, you continue to hit the wall that prevents you from reaching your true mind. But then finally, the moment arrives when that fear transforms into confidence. The once resistant tension is now in harmony with the flow. The rain stops falling and a beautiful rainbow is revealed.

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:

牧牛
所有する欲望は 外なる世界に過ぎない
純粋とは 心の中に 息衝いている
大波を前にし 身を焦がすほどの緊張に
包まれると 内側を支配していた硬い殻に
裂け目ができた 雨がやみ 虹が現れる
葛藤は去り 調和が流れ始めた


and Tim Crowe translated it into English:

"So much practice and preparation, and yet the wall still prevents you from reaching your true mind. Then finally, the moment of turning fear into confidence arrives. Fear, at its very peak, is now in harmony with the flow. The rain creates a rainbow."

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

    The prints are gorgeous

    The print's quality is truly remarkable. The choice of paper for the print is commendable - it imparts a lovely matte finish and makes the colors pop impressively. Please note that the photo was taken at night, so the colors are even more vibrant in the daylight. The packaging was done with great care, ensuring that everything arrived in perfect condition.
