The Bay - Ten Ox Herding - Part 3 - Art Print / Framed Print.

Once all of the physical and mental adversities were conquered, "The bay of dream waves" was finally found. Through the gruelling process of sheer physical and mental exhaustion, there comes a state of true enlightenment. A realisation that the deeper part of the mind is in fact observing you. This is the glimpse into your true mind at work.

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:

見牛
夜が明ける 茨の道を抜けた先
語り継がれる 伝説の湾へ 導かれた
彼方から押し寄せる波が 陽光を浴び 金色に輝いている
気がつけば 傷だらけの身体は著しく
震えていた精神は 揺らがぬ物になっていた
何か深い意識が 心の奥底に芽生えている


and Tim Crowe translated it into English:

"After conquering many physical and mental adversities, the ‘Bay of Dream Waves’ is finally discovered. By going through sheer physical and mental exhaustion, you have the realization that the deeper mind is observing you. Offering a glimpse of your true mind."

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

    Pray for Snow

    Beautiful! Nice heavy paper, nicely wrapped and perfect on arrival. We love Jonas’ art. This is our 4th print. We order the medium which fits perfectly in our 20 X16 frame and we change out the prints every few months. I would have one for every month if I could. We would advise getting it out of the cylinder promptly to avoid that stubborn roll. Let it Snow!
