A Magic Act

old-tibet-tibetan-silver-temple-buddhist-bell-vajra-zmsx0572When I ring the bell,

where does the sound originate?  

In the body of the bell? The clapper?

In the movement of my hand? In my intention? 

Or does the sound originate

in your ear, your attention, or your mind? 

When the illusionist performs a magic act,

can there be an illusion without public?

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.
