Prayer 613

The prayer series

Jesus,

In 101 Zen Stories,
I like Ryonen and Tosui’s stories.

I like Ryonen.
I wish I can do as Ryonen did.
“Ryonen obtained a hot iron and placed it against her face.
In a few moments her beauty had vanished forever.”*

I like Tosui.
If I write so well that I have many adherents,
I think I’ll do as Tosui did,
I’ll quit the lecture business entirely
and no one can find any trace of me.**

You are always with me?

I love you, Jesus.

Amen.

PTH
