Tell Me A Story: Awakening comes to the Buddha and other stories of enlightenment.
Long ago, in a kingdom far away, in a great forest, a man sat alone under a great, spreading, fig tree looking into the deepest matters. He had been a prince, but now, in desperation and hope, he meditated deep into the night. As dawn approached, his mind quieted, he looked up and saw the morning star and cried out,
Now I see that all beings have the nature of the one who comes thus:
Only their delusions and attachments keep them from realizing this.
Our retreat is on the anniversary of that event in early December as the old year winds down. It’s easy to think of the Buddha’s journey and of the teachings that bring awakening as something far off. But the journey belongs to us. Each year we follow the paths out of the palace and meet dragons and hermits and milkmaids and they are different from ones we met last year. We see in them the path of our own destiny and the shape of our own faces.
