Third Anniversary Tea party Welcome! The tea party was a celebration of our third anniversary of our Sangha. It really was a wonderful time we meditated, sang songs and recited poems. These are some of the poems we heard. haiku happiness is here loving all life as it is letting the rest go -karen hilsberg The following poems are by Thay Giac Thanh and were read from Scattered Memories at sangha on the occasion of our 3rd anniversary. Deep Understanding of True Nature A lightening look Brings down several great walls. I bow my head to receive And remember it life after life. An Orchid Stem The wonderful transmission Heart to heart Is just an orchid branch And a cup of morning tea. The undending deep silence. Storm Rage He washed his feet in the ocean. Soft clouds, deep gentle sky, Stars gather fire from ten directions. In raging storm, the lotus blooms beautifully. Love Life, death, peace and joy Are coming together beautifully. Human relationships are nice in so many ways. A moment you come, A moment of love and care Turning everything into eternal light. A 3rd anniversary poem for Organic Garden sangha (read during the tea ceremony) This cup of tea warm fragrant here now I can feel love in our hearts my sangha home we inter-are one family in this cup of tea Dollie True Recollection of Loving Kindness The tea ceremony is a meditation that goes back thousands of years. One aspect of the ceremony that should be pointed out is that tea should be sipped from a bowl without a handle. You should drink when the bowl is warm but not to hot to pickup. If too hot breathe in and breathe out until the time is right.
