Lama Jigme Gyatso
Labeling Ourselves - 24oct21
The Buddha’s path is easy.
The Four noble truths are easy.
The Eight fold path is easy.
And in none of these are we told
to consider who we are.
Contrast Mace Windu
with Qui Gon Jinn:
one dragged his identity
like the ghost of Jacob Marley
dragged his chains.
The other metaphorically
danced like a dakini of legend.
Perhaps that is why
we read in the Tao Te Ching
that he who would label himself,
could never know himself.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported
not by monasteries but by students
as such the production of these livestreams,
blogs, and class materials is supported
by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers
just like you.
