Buddha's Enlightenment Day Poem - 1993

An eminent teacher said "Enlightenment and unenlightenment are merely empty name."

The Buddha saw a star, got enlightenment. What did he get?

Did you see a star? What did you get? Where is your enlightenment star? In the sky? In Hollywood? On top of a Christmas tree? Up, down; north, south; east, west? Always in front of you? Do you see it? Tell me, tell me!!!


Bright stars lighten up the night sky. Bright faces lighten up the dharma room
