In Charge of Nature

"In Charge of Nature" number 80 of 200 from Robert Aitken's book Miniatures of a Zen Master.

Paraphrasing, 'though we forget sometimes, we know in our hearts that human beings are not in charge of nature.'

"In charge", who are we kidding? We're not even in charge of our own individual human nature.

Available rakusu rings. Lace wood, Walnut, Madrone burl

Any error or confusion created by my commentary on
Miniatures of a Zen Master
is solely a reflection of my own delusion and ignorance.
Any merit generated by this activity is solely the result of
Aitken Roshi's clear teaching and is dedicated to
all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas throughout space and time.
