The Well Sees the Donkey

The source of inspiration for this series of paintings comes from case 52 of the Shoyoroko (Book of Serenity). 


Attention. Sozan asked Toku Joza, “Buddha’s true dharmakaya is like the vast sky. Its conforming to things and manifesting shapes is like the moon in the water. How can this principle of conforming be expressed?”

Toku said, “It’s like the donkey seeing the well.”

Sozan remarked, “Well said, but that’s only eighty percent of it.”

Toku rejoined, “How about you, Osho?”

Sozan replied, “The well sees the donkey.”
