We read a poem, “Butterfly Dream” by Ryokan during zazenkai.
With no mind, the flower invites the butterfly,
With no mind, the butterfly visits the flower.
When the flower opens, the butterfly comes,
When the butterfly comes, the flower opens.
I am the same. I do not know others people
And they do not know me.
But without knowing one another,
We Naturally follow the universal law.
