Every Road

Perforated Bookmarks - Sunny Forest Path | Thermalgraphics

I used to walk everywhere, wearing only a robe, a shaved head, and the dust of the road.

It was all great fun, but I was still mistaking the essential for the inessential, and the inessential for the essential.

Please, I know it’s a mouthful. But can you tell one from the other? If so, how?

Here at the end, part of me still wants to go back and kiss every inch of every road I ever walked.

But it’s enough just to say thank you and goodbye.

—Bhikshuni Bhadda Kundalakesa, 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.
