Why Not?

Like a dog forever getting ready to sit,

all day and night

I circled my cushion.

These days, body and mind

sit together like old friends.

Since we aren’t getting anywhere,

they eventually decided,

why not have a seat and try to relax?

There are many paths.

—Bhikshuni Sama, Therigatha (Poems of the First Buddhist Nuns)

About Tashi Nyima

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. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
