musing this morning...

... on the nature of interdependence...

meditation on the sutra of dependent co-arising
scanned, assembled and altered image

"within this world you see things that appear to be born and they die, apparently independent of each other. the grapefruit is independent of the lemon. but in the dharmadhatu, the lotus is not different from the meditation hall, a man is not different from his brother, all things are interconnected; in the one is the all."
