Sublime Dwelling of the Source

Sublime Dwelling of the Source September 28, 2009

That’s me. I’m something like the 9th stage in some sub-lineage of the Chinese Master Linji that has made its way through Thich Nhat Hanh (7th gen, I believe).

Today, on the final day of a short retreat, I was given the Dharma name “Sublime Dwelling of the Source.” You can call me Sid. Or Justin still works.

It was my second Zen retreat in this tradition (I’ve also done one Soto Zen retreat), the last one being near Missoula many years ago.

Beautiful is too simple a word to describe it. Healing. Enveloping. Deepening. All of these come close to one facet or another.

More to come soon…. Until then, dwell sublimely, my friends.
