Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on February 4, 2009.

A genuine follower of the mahayana bodhisattva path is neither attached to the world nor attached to liberation from it; neither filled with desire nor filled with aversion. She or he will not cling to or run away from anything.
--Chan Master Sheng-yen

Jay Rinsen Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on January 25, 2009.

On the fifth day after the rise of spring,
Everywhere the season's gracious attitudes!
The white sun gradually lengthening its course;
The blue-gray clouds hanging as though they would fall.
The last icicle breaking into splinters of jade;
The new stems marshalling red sprouts.
The things I meet are full of gladness:
It is not only I who love the spring.
To welcome the flowers, I stand in the back garden;
To enjoy the sunlight, I sit under the front eaves.
Yet still in my heart, there lingers one regret:
Soon I shall part with the flame of my red stove!
--Po Chu'i

Jay Rinsen Weik leads a retreat workshop at the Toledo Zen Center on January 25, 2009.

"For restful thoughts, one does not need space;
The room where I lie is 10 foot square.
By the western eaves, above the bamboo twigs,
From my couch, I can see the white mountain rise.
But the clouds that hover on its far distant peak
Bring shame to a face that is buried in the world's dust."
--Po Chu'i

"It's said that [Po Chu'i] would read every one of his poems to an uneducated person... but he would make sure that it made sense to people, that at least it was comprehensible in some way. He held to a Confucian ideal that said that poetry is, at some level or other, to educate... not simply just for idle entertainment."
