Blessing for a wayfarer
Oil on canvas - 42 x 42cm - Sold


That on your way
your skin may know the
touch of the thread of a
thousand silkworms.
That in your nostrils there
will rise the perfume of
jasmine, and in your mouth
the taste of honey.
That your ears may hear
the rush of the eagle’s wing,
and the rustling of bamboo.
That your eyes may behold
the elephant walking through
the rainbow
and that in your
consciousness there may
rise the bright diamond point
of the Dhamma-Kaya
of clear pure mind.
