A Sitting

by pcb123 on Sep.03, 2009, under PROCESS, VIDEO, ZEN

The zafu (cushion) is from Bodh Gaya, site of the Bodhi tree.  After Siddhartha/Shakyamuni’s breakthrough there, he went to Sarnath, outside Varanasi. That’s where I got this dangling cloth. I wasn’t able to concentrate on my breathing while I was there, but now, many years later, I bow to India from my perch in Echo Park. The relics aren’t important; they’re just signs.
